Israel Air Force jets struck five terror targets in the Gaza Strip overnight Thursday, the IDF confirmed.

Israel Radio cited Palestinian sources as saying the IAF had hit various terror sites in northern and central Gaza, including two outposts belonging to Hamas's military wing.

On Thursday night, Palestinian terrorists in the coastal enclave fired four rockets toward southern Israel, activating the Code Red alert in Sderot and surrounding communities.

Israeli media reported that the projectiles had failed to reach their targets, landing in open territory near the border with Gaza.


No injuries or damage were reported on the Israeli side.

The IAF strike came after weeks of relative quite following a large-scale rocket attack on the South by Islamic Jihad terrorists in March. The Air Force struck nearly 30 Gaza targets in response to the attack.
