Israel fires on Gaza after rocket lands in Negev

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli warplanes bombed two sites early Sunday in the south of the Gaza Strip belonging to the military wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

No injuries were reported, but a training site was damaged, a statement from the National Resistance Brigades said. Israeli aircraft fired two missiles at the site, the groups said.

Israeli aircraft also bombed a site belonging to Islamic Jihad's military wing in southern Gaza.

Israel's army confirmed the operation and said it followed a rocket attack from Gaza.

"A short while ago, in response to rocket fire this evening, an IAF aircraft targeted a terrorist weapon storage facility and a Hamas training installation in the southern Gaza Strip. Direct hits on the targets were confirmed," the military said in a statement.

"These sites were targeted in response to the rocket launched at civilian communities in southern Israel.

"The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will not allow for the reality before Pillar of Defense to take place again and threaten Israeli civilians. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip."
