Gazan terrorists fired three rockets at the Holon-Bat Yam area in the afternoon; the Iron Dome system intercepted them. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for that attack.

Consecutive rocket salvos were sustained near the Gaza Strip, including the Sha'ar Hanegev and Eshkol regions. While two homes sustained direct strikes, no injuries were reported.

Thirty out of 90 rockets were intercepted that were fired into Israel.
The air force attacked targets that included 10 tunnels and five Hamas government buildings, among them the Interior Ministry, the National Security Ministry and a naval police position.

A hundred and eighteen underground rocket launchers, including infrastructure designed for medium and long-range rocket fire against Israel were fired upon.

The attacks caused significant damage to the rocket-firing capabilities of terrorist organizations, the IDF said.

The Israeli Air Force targeted dozens of Hamas infrastructure sites used by the organization's senior commanders. The strikes targeted infrastructure used by Ahmed Andur, a senior Hamas member in northern Gaz. Andur is responsible for rocket fire on southern Israel in recent months as well as Tuesday's failed attempt by Hamas naval commandos to land on Zikim Beach and murder civilians.

Andur also commanded a cell that carried out bombing and shooting attacks on IDF units, and spent six years in an Israeli prison in one term, and five years in a Palestinian prison in a second term.
