Israel strikes Hamas targets in northern Gaza

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said early on Saturday that they carried out an attack against Hamas, striking a "terror tunnel" in the northern Gaza Strip.

"The strike was conducted in response to the mortar shells launched from Gaza towards communities in Israel throughout the night, in addition to the various Hamas-led terror acts perpetrated that have targeted Israeli civilians and sovereignty," IDF stated. Israel added that the Palestinian group must "bear the consequences for the terror it has waged against Israeli civilians."

According to Israeli media, the attack came in response to Hamas launching over 30 rockets towards Israel, out of which six were intercepted by the IDF.
