The Israeli Air Force attacked terror targets in the Gaza Strip overnight Thursday. The attacks came in response to the recent escalation in rocket attacks on Israeli communities.

The IDF Spokesperson confirmed that the attacks had taken place. Earlier, the Palestinian Authority-based Ma’an news agency reported that IAF aircraft had struck Hamas targets in Gaza City and in Khan Yunis.

At least six rockets were fired from the Gaza region at Israeli communities on Thursday.

The rockets landed in open areas and no injuries or damage was reported. The 'Color Red' anti-rocket alert was activated in the area.

Gaza terrorists also fired a rocket at southern Israel Thursday morning. The projectile landed in an open area in Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council.

No injuries or damage were reported in that incident, either.
