The IDF on Friday said it regretted harm to civilians in airstrikes on the Gaza Strip overnight, emphasized that the injuries were caused by the presence of explosives and weapons at the targeted sites, including rockets. The airstrikes, the IDF Spokesman said in a statement, were accurate and direct hits on terror targets were recorded.

One civilian was killed and 13 were wounded in the strikes that came in response to rockets fired from the Strip into Israel. The IDF laid responsibility for the casualties on Hamas, "which chooses to operate in the heart of civilian population centers and uses human shields."
