The Israel Air Force struck three Hamas terror infrastructure sites in the Gaza Strip in response to an earlier rocket fired at Israel, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said Thursday morning.
The northern Gaza sites reportedly belonged to the Hamas terror group.
The IDF said that they hold Hamas responsible for anything that happens in the Gaza Strip and will "do its utmost to preserve the calm in southern Israel's cities."
A mortar shell landed in Israel Wednesday night in an open field in the Eshkol Regional Council, near the security fence with Gaza.
The mortar firing did not prompt a red alert siren and there were no reports of damage or injury from the incident.
