The IDF struck several Hamas posts in the Gaza Strip on Friday night, the IDF spokesperson reported. 
An IDF tank shelled a Hamas outpost north of Beit Hanoun and an IAF drone stuck a Hamas observation point near Beit Lahia, Palestinian media reported. 


The strikes were north of the Gaza Strip and were in response to the rockets fired at Israel earlier on Friday night, according to an IDF press release.
The IDF International Media Spokesperson Jonathan Conricus tweeted that "most of the international media will probably report: 'Israeli military strikes Gaza.' Go figure the logic behind that." 


The Palestinian Ministry of Health reported no injuries as a result of the IDF strikes.   


Five rockets were fired and air raid sirens heard in Gaza border communities as well as the city of Sderot, no injuries were reported. 

Prior to the rocket fire, two Palestinians were killed and 76 others were injured during massive protests along the Gaza border.
