The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement that militants from the Gaza Strip fired three rockets toward southern Israel, intercepting two by Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system and the other hit a road in the vicinity of the coastal Palestinian enclave.
According to the IDF, in response, it’s combat aircraft attacked a number of targets at the Hamas military base in the northern Gaza Strip, including the office of a Hamas battalion commander.
Meanwhile, several Palestinian rocket attacks and Israeli counter-attacks and airstrikes against Hamas sites had occurred in the last few weeks.
Israel has been imposing a crippling blockade on the Gaza Strip since Hamas took over the enclave in 2007.
