Israeli Air Force planes struck four Hamas targets in the Gaza Friday night, responding to a rocket fired from the Strip, which landed in a kindergarten in Sderot.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) struck four targets belonging to terrorist group Hamas in the northern and central Gaza Strip on Friday, responding to the firing of a rocket from the Strip earlier that night. The rocket hit a kindergarten in the town of Sderot, causing property damage but no injuries. No injuries resulting from the IAF strikes were reported.

“The IDF will continue to operate forcefully against any party who perpetrates terrorism against the state of Israel and its residents, and for the preservation of calm in southern towns,” an IDF Spokesperson said, “The responsibility for the incident is exclusively on the terrorist organization Hamas, and it is the one who will bear responsibility for any actions taken inside the borders of the Gaza Strip.”

No organization claimed responsibility for launching the rocket as of yet, but Hamas published a statement Friday according to which, “Israel will pay a high price for its crimes and assassination policy.” The “assassination policy” in question is likely a Hamas reference to the killing of terrorists who perpetrated West Bank attacks.
