The Israel Air Force struck terror targets in the northern Gaza Strip overnight Tuesday, following earlier rocket attacks on southern Israel emanating from the coastal territory, the IDF Spokesman's Office said in a statement.

IAF aircraft recorded direct hits on a smuggling tunnel and on an additional center of terrorist activity. All of the aircraft involved in the strike returned safely to Israel, according to the statement.

The IDF Spokesman's Office said that terrorists had planned to use the tunnel as a means to infiltrate Israel and perpetrate a terror attack against Israeli citizens and IDF soldiers.

The IDF reiterated that attacks on Israeli citizens and IDF soldiers will not be tolerated and Hamas will be held responsible for any such action.
