Israel hit Hamas naval targets early Thursday morning in response to rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, the IDF reported.

“In response to the rocket fired from #Gaza to #Israel, we just struck a number of military targets in a Hamas naval facility in the northern Gaza Strip,” the IDF tweeted around 1:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.

Terrorists in the Gaza Strip launched six rockets into Israel overnight Wednesday and into Thursday morning. These rockets were aimed at Israeli civilians with the intention of killing innocent Jews.

“The IDF will continue to counter terrorist attacks and views the Hamas terrorist organization as responsible for anything happening in and out of the Gaza Strip,” the IDF said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said “I’m advancing a broad campaign” against Hamas.

“It will be different from we’ve seen in the past. I can’t detail the preparations, but we are developing a broad campaign and it could be that it will happen.”

Hamas and other terror groups have increased their rocket attacks against Israeli civilian populations in recent weeks, as well as trying to infiltrate into Israel to conduct terror attacks. The increase comes after Iran increased the funding to Palestinian terrorist groups and called on them to acquire intel on Israel.
