IAF aircraft struck in the Gaza Strip overnight Thursday, targeting a weapons cache in the north and two smuggling tunnels in the south, the army said.

A spokesman for the military said the strikes were in response to yesterday’s rocket attacks from the Strip.
Two mortar shells and a Kassam rocket were fired from Gaza Thursday evening and landed near one of the kibbutzim in the Negev Regional Council area.

Earlier in the day, three mortar shells exploded after hitting open land in the Ashkelon area. Three other shells landed in Palestinian territory near the Erez crossing.

No injuries or damage to property were reported in any of the attacks.
