At least 13 rockets were fired early Wednesday morning from the Gaza Strip toward Israeli territory.
Eight of the rockets were intercepted. The rest of the rockets exploded in open areas. Red Color sirens were sounded throughout the Gaza envelope after the firing.
Meanwhile, the IDF attacked Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said that the attack targeted about ten terrorist targets in a factory for the production of weapons and explosives, as well as in a military compound used for training and rocket fire tests by Hamas.
“The IDF takes all terrorist activity against Israeli territory very seriously and will continue to act as much as necessary against attempts to harm Israeli citizens and their sovereignty. The Hamas terrorist organization bears responsibility for what happens in and out of the Gaza Strip,” the IDF statement said.
Terrorists in Gaza have fired 15 rockets at Israel since last night.
In response, our Air Force just struck Hamas targets in Gaza including a weapons & explosives manufacturing factory and a military compound.
We will continue to operate against any attempts to attack Israel.
