IAF Responds to Rockets with Direct Hits

The Israeli air force hit three targets in Gaza on Saturday, hours after a rocket fired from the territory exploded near a house in Netivot in southern Israel, sources on both sides said.

"Aircraft targeted a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip, and two terror activity sites in the central Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed," a statement from the Israeli military said.
