IDF Retaliates After Rocket Fire From Gaza


Israel launched a retaliatory strike on Sunday night in response to rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.

Air raid sirens sounded in Israeli border communities when the rocket was detected. The Jerusalem Post reports that the rocket failed to cross the border and exploded in Gaza itself.

The IDF retaliated with tank fire that destroyed a watchtower belonging to Hamas.

It is unclear precisely who fired the rocket, as groups even more radical than Hamas have occasionally launched their own rockets at Israel.

Nonetheless, Israel holds Hamas responsible for all rocket fire from the Strip and retaliates accordingly.
