Israel responds to Hamas attack

Israeli Air Force aircraft attacked a Hamas position in the northern Gaza Strip this morning in response to a rocket attack several hours earlier, the army said.

"The IDF sees the Hamas terror group as the sole party responsible for what takes place in the Gaza Strip and for what emanates from it," an Israel Defense Forces spokesperson said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage in the strike, Times of Israel reported.

The army said earlier that it wasn’t clear whether the rocket fired from the Gaza Strip toward Israel Thursday night had landed in Israeli territory.

No rocket sirens were triggered, indicating the projectile was not headed for a populated area in Israel. No impact site was immediately identified, and the Israeli military said it was investigating.
