The IDF carried out artillery strikes on a Hamas target in Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza late Wednesday morning, according to Palestinian sources that did not provide any details on casualties or damage. The attack came about an hour after a rocket fired from Gaza landed in the heart of the Israeli city of Sderot, located near the border.
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.
