The Israeli Air Force overnight Saturday launched airstrikes against two weapons manufacturing sites belonging to Hamas in northern Gaza.

The attack took place in retaliation to the rocket fire on southern Israel on Saturday evening, the IDF Spokesperson said in a statement.

"The IDF will not tolerate terrorist fire at Israeli territory and will continue to act against any attempt to disturb the peace of the southern towns. The Hamas terrorist organization is responsible [for the rocket fire], "according to the IDF statement.

Saturday evening’s attack took place shortly after 11:00 p.m., when the Iron Dome system intercepted a rocket over the Hof Ashkelon region. There were no reports of physical injuries or damages.

Three additional rockets missed their target and exploded on the Gazan side of the border.

On Friday night, terrorists from Gaza fired two rockets towards southern Israel.

The rockets, however, missed the mark and exploded on the Gazan side of the border. It is unknown whether there were any injuries or damages.
