Israeli Air Force (IAF) aircraft on Monday night hit a military compound belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization in central Gaza, the IDF said in a statement.

According to the statement, the airstrike was in retaliation for a rocket attack on the Eshkol Regional Council of southern Israel on Monday morning.

“The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for Gaza and will continue to operate firmly to maintain the peace in the southern localities,” the IDF statement said.

In Monday morning’s attack, which took place shortly before 7:00 a.m., a rocket fired by Gazan terrorists hit an open area in the Eshkol regional, causing no physical injuries or damages.

Just earlier this month another rocket hit open ground in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council, and just several days before that another rocket hit the same region.
