Overnight, IAF aircraft targeted two sites – a weapon manufacturing site and a weapon storage facility in the northern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.

The sites were targeted in response to the continuous rocket fire towards southern Israel.

The IDF in a statement said that it will not tolerate any attempt by terrorist groups to target Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers, and will continue to operate against those who use terror against the State of Israel.

Hamas has been identified as being solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
