    Israel has attacked four military locations in Gaza in response to rocket attacks from the region.

    On Saturday morning, the Israeli Air Force “targeted two Hamas military training facilities and two other military sites,” according to official reports.

    This attack was a direct response to five rockets launched from Gaza on Friday, for which Daesh-affiliated terrorist organisation Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis took credit.

    The two projectiles which made it to Israel landed in Sha'ar Hanegev in the north-west Negev, outside any populated areas, causing no casualties or damage.

    A statement released by the Sinai-based extremist group, whose rockets set off air raid sirens in the area, stated: “We take responsibility for the rocket bombardment on the Sderot settlement at 11:07 p.m. Friday night.

    “Praise God, we allowed for Jewish blood [to flow] and we turned their night to day. We activated alarms in all of southern occupied Palestine.”

    The IDF has reiterated that it holds Hamas “solely responsible for all terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip,” and pledged to “continue to act strongly against any attempt to disrupt the quiet in the southern communities.”
