The IAF attacked several terror-related targets in Gaza Thursday overnight. The air attacks came as a response to the third of three rocket attacks on Israeli population centers during the Rosh Hashana holiday.

Some of the targets publicized by the IDF included Hamas offices in Gaza City, a smuggling tunnel in the southern region of the Strip and what described as "terror center" in the northern Strip.

No specifics regarding Palestinians casualties could be verified at the time of the report -although Palestinian security forces claimed at least five injured- and the IDF announced that all the IAF planes returned safely to their bases after the conclusion of the attack.

"The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm the citizens of the State of Israel and will continue to deal firmly and with strength against any source that seeks to terrorize the nation," the IDF Spokesperson's Unit explained after the attack. "The IDF views Hamas as solely responsible for what occurs in Gaza and maintaining the quiet in the Strip."
