IDF attacks Hamas weapons production site following rocket fire from Gaza

Several Palestinians were lightly injured after IDF fighter jets attacked a Hamas weapons production site in the northern Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian media.

According to the Palestinian Al-Quds newspaper, the Qatari Envoy to Gaza Muhammad al-Emadi was in a hotel right next to the site of the attack. Al-Emadi arrived to the Gaza Strip on Tuesday.

In addition, the Gaza fishing range has been reduced to 10 nautical miles Thursday morning, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), Major General Kamil Abu Rukun, announced.

The IDF fire and the reduction of the fishing range came in response to a rocket fired from Gaza toward Israel overnight on Wednesday (Thursday morning). The rocket was intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome. The IDF Spokespersons Unit stressed that Israel holds Hamas responsible for all actions in and from the Gaza Strip and that the terrorist group will suffer the consequences of any action against Israeli citizens.
