The IDF targeted a terror cell Thursday night attempting to fire a rocket at Israel, the IDF Spokesman's Unit said, after two other projectiles fired from Gaza exploded in Israeli territory.
Israel air craft struck targets in the northern Gaza Strip, thwarting the terrorists' attempts to attack Israel.
The IDF said Hamas was responsible for all terrorist activity in Gaza aimed at Israel.
Two people were wounded during the IDF strike Thursday, according to Palestinian Ma'an news agency.
Earlier Thursday, two rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza causing no casualties or damages.
The rockets were fired at separate times at the Eshkol and Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Councils, exploding in open fields.
