IAF jets struck two Hamas terrorist infrastructures in northern Gaza overnight, in retaliation for a rocket that exploded in the Negev on Wednesday night, the army confirmed on Thursday.

A rocket launched from the Gaza Strip landed in an open area in the Negev on Wednesday night. No damage or injuries were reported, the IDF spokesperson’s unit said.

The Red Alert incoming rocket siren did not sound because the rocket was headed toward an open area.

“The IDF considers the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for what is happening in the Gaza Strip,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.

Five rockets have been launched at Israel within the last month, including two rocket attacks by ISIS terrorists in Sinai.
