Overnight, in response to rocket fire at Israel, Israel Air Force aircraft targeted a terror activity site and a weapons-manufacturing facility in the northern Gaza Strip, as well as a weapons-storage facility in the southern Gaza Strip.

Direct hits were confirmed.

Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner, IDF (Zahal) Spokesman, stated: “Israelis cannot be held at the mercy of these hideous terrorists operating from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. The bases of Gaza terrorism and its industry of death will not be immune while our citizens are being attacked. It is our responsibility, right and obligation to defend Israel from Gaza based aggression”
