Following 180 rocket attacks from Gaza, ceasefire reportedly reached between Hamas and Israel; IAF confirms it hit over 150 targets in Gaza Strip since Wednesday; IDF: Hamas is responsible and bears the consequences for the ongoing events.
Reports surfaced of an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire between Hamas and Israel on Thursday night following the recent two-day flare up of rocket attacks.
The Israel Air Force reported that it struck over 150 targets in the Gaza Strip since Wednesday evening when rocket attacks began. It’s strikes targeted “weapons storage, military compounds, training compounds, a building used by Hamas for military purposes, and terror cells.”
Over 180 rockets were fired at Israel with dozens of injuries and damages reported on southern communities in Israel. Around 30 of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome. Rockets hit Be’er Sheva on Thursday, the first rocket attack on the city since Operation Protective Edge in 2014.
