The Israeli Air Force attacked Hamas targets in Gaza on Saturday night in retaliation to the rocket launch yesterday from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory.

The IDF Spokesperson's unit stated that the IAF attacked a number of targets in a military compound belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization in the southern Gaza Strip as well as underground infrastructures in the north.
It was also reported that the attack was carried out in response to the launching of a rocket into Israel earlier on Friday, as well as attempts to damage security infrastructures in recent days. 

"The IDF regards with great severity any attempt to harm Israeli citizens and will continue to act firmly against these terrorist acts," The IDF announced. "The Hamas terrorist organization bears responsibility for everything that happens in Gaza."
