An IAF aircraft targeted a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip overnight Tuesday and scored a direct hit against it, the IDF Spokesperson said in a statement.

According to the statement, the attack came in response to the firing of rockets at Israel over the last few days.

Late Tuesday evening, a Kassam rocket fired from the Gaza region landed in an open area in the Sdot Negev Regional Council. There were no injuries or damage.

The “Red Alert” siren was heard in several local communities before the rocket landed.

“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers, and will respond with determination to any attempt to use terror against the State of Israel,” said the IDF Spokesperson’s statement. “The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.”

In the past few weeks, there has been a ‘quiet war’ in Gaza, with terrorists firing rockets at southern Israel nearly every day and the IDF responding by attacking terror targets in the Strip.
