An IAF drone aircraft fired a missile Sunday evening at a terror cell that was making final preparations to launch a rocket at Israel, the IDF Spokesman said.

"The IDF will continue to act with determination, and to any extent necessary, against every element, until quiet and routine life is restored to the citizens of the state of Israel,” the Spokesman added. “Hamas, the terror organization, along with its offshoots, is the address, and it bears responsibility.”

Gaza media reported Sunday that one person was killed in the IDF strike. It is possible that the terrorist belongs to the armed wing of Hamas.

Earlier Sunday, Gaza terrorists fired six rockets at the town of Netivot. Two of them were intercepted by the Iron Dome system, and struck harmlessly in open, uninhabited spaces.
