Wednesday night Israeli jets hit a dozen targets in the Gaza strip after rockets were launched at Israel from a Hamas-controlled region.
According to Fox News, Hamas launched more than 70 rockets were launched from Gaza Wednesday evening. Many of the rockets fell into open territory. The Iron Dome defense system intercepted 21 of the rockets, according to The Jerusalem Post.
Even so, 15 Israelis were injured. Many families were forced to spend the night in shelters.
At least six people were injured from shrapnel in the border town of Sderot, according to The Jerusalem Post. A rocket landed directly on a house in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council.
Hamas celebrated the attacks, saying that it was “delivering on our promise. The resistance accepted the responsibility to even the playing field with the enemy and it is succeeding in doing so.”
Israeli Defense Forces reported that the 12 Hamas sites hit by the jets included “an offensive maritime terror tunnel … several terror sites in military compounds throughout the Gaza Strip … rocket manufacturing facilities and a central logistical military complex.”
