At least 6 rockets were fired from Gaza through the night, the IDF stated on Friday morning, adding that the projectiles appeared to strike open fields, causing neither injury nor damage, according to preliminary reports.

In response, the Israeli Air Force carried out an attack against Hamas, hitting a weapons manufacturing facility and communications in the area, the IDF stated. There is no immediate news about casualties in the enclave.

The rocket strike comes after another attack from the Gaza Strip last week that triggered air raid sirens in southern Israel but failed to hit any targets, according to the IDF.
