On Wednesday night, a rocket fired from Gaza toward Sderot was intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system. One woman was injured while running for a bomb shelter and a man was treated for shell shock. A few hours after the rocket attack, the IDF struck a site they identified as “a Hamas weapons manufacturing site.”
On Thursday evening, another rocket was fired at Israel from Gaza. The Israeli Air Force (IAF) carried out an airstrike against a Hamas weapons manufacturing site in the northern Gaza Strip. A Hamas naval military post in the northern Gaza Strip was also destroyed.
In response to the rocket fire, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories announced on Thursday morning that the fishing zone in the Gaza Strip will be reduced to ten nautical miles until further notice.
