The IDF said that warning sirens were activated near the Gaza border. The Israel Defense Forces said earlier that fighter jets and aircraft hit several “sea-based bases” in the north belonging to the Hamas terror group after Palestinian terrorists in Gaza fired a rocket from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel Wednesday night.

The army said the strikes were in response to the rocket attack, as well as “continuing terror activities from the Strip.” An army statement added, “The IDF will continue to oppose attempts to harm Israeli civilians and considers the Hamas terrorist organization responsible for what happens in and out of the Gaza Strip. ”
