The Israel Air Force struck two Hamas targets in southern Gaza a few hours after a rocket hit southern Israel. The IDF Spokesman said the air strikes were a response to the missile attack, and that it views Hamas as being responsible for all terrorist activities in the Gaza Strip.
The projectile exploded in an open area of the Gaza periphery region after triggering warning sirens. No injuries or damage were reported.
