Islamist movement Hamas on Sunday warned Israel against "foolishness" after an IAF airstrike, which was retaliation for rocket fire, killed a pregnant woman and her toddler, AFP reports. 

"This shows the occupation's desire to escalate," said Sami Abu Zuhri, a spokesman for Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip. "We warn the occupation against continuing this foolishness."

The IAF struck Hamas terror targets overnight Saturday/Sunday, after multiple rockets were fired at Israeli civilians. 

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.
