The Israel Air Force attacked two Hamas owned infrastructure sites Sunday night in retaliation to a Gazan rocket attack on Southern Israel a few hours earlier. There were no injuries reported in the rocket strike.

The rocket triggered warning sirens warning sirens in Sderot and in the surrounding areas before exploding in an open area in the Sha’ar Hanegev Council.

Security forces launched a search of the area to locate the rocket’s remnants.

The IDF retaliation attack took place close to 1:00 a.m., striking two Hamas targets – one in the northern part of the strip and the second in the center.

The IDF said in a statement that it holds Hamas solely responsible for the happenings in Gaza, and vowed to “continue to act severely against any attempt to disturb the peace of communities in the South.”
