An Independence Day blast
As Independence Day came to a conclusion here in Israel, 'Palestinian' terrorists in Gaza fired two rockets between Sderot and Netivot, east of Beit Hanoun. In response, the IDF hit what Hamas claims is an empty building and the IDF says is 'part of the terrorist infrastructure
The IDF on Thursday night, shortly before midnight, launched an
airstrike which targeted a “terrorist infrastructure” in northern Gaza,
the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.
According to the statement, the airstrike was in retaliation for an earlier rocket attack by Gaza terrorists on southern Israel.
In addition, said the IDF, the entry of worshipers from Gaza into Israel will be prevented on Friday.
“The IDF will not permit any attempt to harm the security of the citizens of Israel,” the statement said.
The IDF confirmed earlier that at least one terrorist rocket had been fired from Gaza at southern Israel.
There were no reports of physical injuries or damage. The remains of
one rocket were located in an open area in the Sha'ar Hanegev region.
The last time a Color Red siren was heard in the Gaza Belt region was in late December – four months ago.
