The Israel Air Force struck terrorists in southern Gaza on Saturday morning, the IDF Spokesman's Office said in a statement.

The strike comes in retaliation to three mortar shells that were fired from the Gaza Strip into the Eshkol Regional Council earlier on Saturday and a rocket fired into southern Israel on Friday. No injuries or damage were reported.

IAF aircraft recorded direct hits on their targets, and reiterated that it holds Hamas responsible for all terror activity emanating from Gaza and it will continue to respond forcefully to attacks on Israeli citizens.
