IAF aircraft attacked targets in Northern Gaza over the night (between Wednesday and Thursday) in response to a mortar shell that landed in Israel late last night. “An aircraft attacked three targets that are Hamas terror infrastructures,” said the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit in a statement. The mortar landed in an open field. Thus, the Red Alert siren was not sounded. No injuries or damages were reported.

According to the statement issued by the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, the Israeli airstrike was conducted in response to the mortar fire that was aimed at Israel’s Eshkol Regional Council late last night. “The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for the occurrences in Gaza and will continue to act firmly to preserve the calmness in the communities of Southern Israel.”

The fire from Gaza comes just a few hours a mortar shell fired from Syria landed in Northern Israel. The mortar fire did not result in any injuries or damages. According to the IDF, this was yet another incident of spillover fire from the battles between the Syrian Army and rebels forces in town of Quneitra.
