Gaza-based terrorists fired a rocket toward the city of Beer Sheva. The rocket exploded in an open area, causing no casualties or damage. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was reportedly in the area at the time of the attack.

In response, IAF fighter jets and helicopters struck a Hamas rocket manufacturing site and military post.

“Hamas will bear the consequences for terror activity against Israeli civilians,” the IDF stated after the attack.

The last rocket attack on Israel from Gaza occurred two months ago.
