The IDF Spokesperson stated that terrorist targets belonging to Hamas in the northern Gaza were attacked during the night, Wednesday to Thursday, 3 Sivan, in retaliation for gunfire that struck homes in Sderot during the afternoon hours. Four different targets were attacked in a military compound, including terrorist buildings and infrastructure. In addition, three additional targets were attacked at the weapons production facility.
The attack was carried out in response to heavy machinegun fire at the city of Sderot and several shooting incidents against IDF soldiers during the day.

The IDF is determined to continue its missions and to ensure security of the residents of Israel”.
