The Israeli Air Force (IAF) on Sunday night bombed several Hamas military targets in the Gaza Strip in response to a rocket attack on Israel earlier in the evening.

Gaza-based terrorists launched a rocket at Israeli communities in the Strip’s vicinity. The rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system. Fragments of the intercepted rocket fell in the city of Sderot, damaging a car.

No one was injured in the attack.

The IDF stated that fighter jets attacked Hamas targets in the Strip, including a concrete production site used to build underground infrastructure and underground infrastructure.

The IDF “views all terrorist activities against Israeli territory with severity and will continue to act as necessary against attempts to harm Israeli civilians,” it stated.

“The Hamas terror organization bears responsibility for what is happening in and out of the Gaza Strip, and it will bear the consequences for terrorist operations against Israeli citizens,” the military added.

The last rocket attack from Gaza occurred three weeks ago.
