Following the launching of a rocket toward Southern Israel, Sunday, the Israeli Air Force attacked several terror targets in a Hamas training Camp, Monday.
According to CBN News, Israel’s Air Force attacked a training camp on the Northern Gaza Strip, an area that has been the center of conflict for many years.
The Israel Defense Force said in a statement, “Air force fighter jets and helicopters attacked several terror targets at a Hamas training camp in the northern Gaza Strip." The IDF noted that the rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome, The Times of Israel Reports.
Also on Sunday, Hamas is believed to have deployed and detonated a drone carrying explosives in a field in southern Israel. No injuries were reported.
Israel responded to this move by firing on two Hamas observation posts, the IDF said in a statement.
According to CBN News, the IDF did not explicitly identify who send the drone into Israel, but they did reveal in their statement that the name of a Gazan college was printed on the drone.
While the suspect is still unidentified, the military is urging all people in the region to be cautious of their surroundings and to report anything that appears to be suspicious.
