(Worthy News) - The Israel Air Force attacked four Hamas military installations Wednesday morning in response to a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip the previous evening.
"The attack took place in response to... a rocket attack on the State of Israel earlier this evening, which was intercepted by an Iron Dome battery," the IDF stated.
An Iron Dome anti-rocket battery intercepted at least one rocket over the southern city of Ashdod on Tuesday after air raid sirens sounded in the region.
"The IDF will not tolerate terrorists opening fire onto Israeli territory and will continue to act severely against any attempt to disturb the peace of communities in the South," the statement went on to say, adding that Israel holds Hamas responsible for the attack. [ Source ]
