IDF have launched a search for the individual in the Gaza border area communities.

Security forces advised residents living in the communities surrounding the area to stay at home and not to make unnecessary journeys.

The incident comes days after IAF planes hit two targets in Gaza.

"As part of a joint IDF and general security services operation, IAF planes during the night attacked two terror targets in the Gaza Strip," an IDF statement said. "The hits were exact and focused on specific targets. All IAF planes returned back to the base safely."

The IDF said "the attack was in response to rocket attacks in the Eshkol Council area earlier in the week."
