The Israeli Air Force carried out airstrikes against targets in northern Gaza early Wednesday afternoon, Arab sources said. The strikes were the latest response to the firing of a rocket at the Israeli city of Sderot. Earlier, IAF artillery and tanks shelled targets in Gaza. The rocket exploded in the heart of the city in the morning but did not cause damage or casualties. Ansar Beit Al Makdis, the ISIS affiliate in the Sinai Peninsula, claimed responsibility for the attack.
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.
