Israeli Air Force strikes at Hamas positions in Gaza after rocket attack

As stated by representatives of the Israeli military command, the raid became Israel’s response to a rocket fired from Gaza on Monday.

As a result of an air attack three objects were hit: an armed training camp, a security compound and an observation post belonging to Hamas. One person suffered from light injures.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the Palestinian rocket attack, although Israel said that Hamas bears overall responsibility for what happens in the enclave.

Hamas is an Islamist political party and paramilitary forces, ruling the Gaza Strip since 2007. A number of countries, including Israel, Egypt, Canada, the USA and the EU, consider it a terrorist organization.
