The Israeli Air Force carried out airstrikes against Hamas targets in Gaza early Wednesday afternoon after a rocket claimed by Ansar Beit Al Maqdis, the ISIS affiliate in the Sinai Peninsula, exploded outside a school in Sderot. No casualties or damage were caused. Earlier, IAF artillery and tanks shelled Hamas facilities in Gaza.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
