The IDF confirmed on Tuesday night that IDF tanks struck three sites belonging to Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip, after a rocket was launched from Gaza towards southern Israel earlier in the night.

 

One rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip towards southern Israel on Tuesday night triggering a red alert in an open area, according to an IDF spokesperson.

No injuries or damages were reported.
 
The al-Qassam Bridgades, the military wing of Hamas, announced on Wednesday morning that one of its members from Gaza City had died after a terror tunnel he was working in collapsed. It is unclear if his death had any connection with the rocket fire or the IDF’s response on Tuesday night.

The rocket fire was the first in about 40 days. The last rocket fire from the Gaza Strip was reported at the end of March, when one rocket was fired from Gaza and fell in an open area in southern Israel. The IDF responded to the rocket fire in March by attacking “military positions and infrastructure used for underground activity by Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip,” according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.

 

Earlier on Tuesday evening, the Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, announced new details concerning the Badr 3 rocket in a video, according to the Palestinian Sawa news, including information on its use in past clashes and on further development of the rocket that has made it more destructive and given it a further range.
