Hamas prepares to launch rockets on Israeli towns

The airstrike was in retaliation for a rocket attack on southern Israel on Sunday evening.

“The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for Gaza and will continue to act to maintain quiet in southern towns,” the IDF statement said.

Sunday evening’s rocket attack targeted the Sha’ar Hanegev region next to Gaza.

The rocket exploded in an open area, and did not cause any physical injuries or damage.

Two weeks ago, Gaza terrorists fired a rocket onto the Sha’ar Hanegev region. The rocket exploded in an open area, causing no physical injuries or damage.

The IDF later launched airstrikes against two terrorist infrastructures belonging to Hamas in southern Gaza.
