Israel attacked Hamas bases in Gaza. world News

Israel says its military targeted Hamas in response to a rocket attack launched from the Palestinian enclave in Gaza.

The Israeli air force attacked two rocket firepower manufacturing sites, a military complex and “underground infrastructure”, the Israeli Air Force said on Sunday.

According to the military, rockets were fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip shortly after the siren sounded in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon on Saturday evening.

The military’s statement provided no further information, but emergency services said they had no notice of anyone being injured and Israeli media said the projectile fell into the open ground.

Two rockets were fired from the coastal strip in neighboring Israel in the wee hours of last Sunday after the latest report from the Hamas-ruled Palestinian enclave opened fire.

There were no casualties or losses in that attack. Israel struck back with fighter jets, helicopters and tanks, what Hamas said was under Hamas target.

There was no claim of responsibility for the November 15 rocket fire, but Israel held the Islamic group Hamas regularly responsible for all attacks in its territory.

In August, Hamas announced that they had reached a Qatari-arbitration agreement with Israel to end more weeks of cross-border exchanges of fire.

Hamas, considered a terrorist group by Israel, captured Gaza in 2007 from the rival Palestinian movement Fatah. Since then Hamas has fought three devastating wars with Israel in the coastal region where about two million Palestinians live.

Israel has since maintained a crumbling blockade on the Gaza Strip to isolate Hamas.
