IAF jets carried out multiple airstrikes in Gaza late Wednesday night. The strikes were in response to three rockets fired from Gaza into Israel on Wednesday.
An IDF spokesperson said the jets had targeted “significant terror infrastructure.” The IDF and other Israeli officials, however, declined to elaborate on the nature of the targets. Palestinian sources said the attacks took place in the Rafah region in the southern Gaza Strip. No Palestinian injuries were reported.
On Wednesday, Israeli Police said that two shells fired from Gaza landed in open fields in the Eshkol Regional Council. A third rocket was reportedly fired, but where it landed is currently unknown. This is the fifth instance of rocket fire from Gaza into Israel in the last week.
“The IDF will continue to use all means to thwart attempts to attack the citizens of Israel. The IDF will not allow any breach of Israeli sovereignty or any hostile attempts by terror organizations such as Hamas and remains prepared for a wide variety of scenarios,” the IDF said.
