Israel Retaliates After Grad Rocket Attack

JERUSALEM, Aug. 16 (UPI) — Hours after a Grad rocket fired from Gaza exploded north of Beersheba, the Israeli army hit suspected terror sites in Gaza, killing a Hamas operative.

The army said five other Palestinians were injured in the air strikes that hit five targets, including a weapons smuggling tunnel near the border with Egypt and other sites in southern, eastern and central Gaza, Ma’ariv reported on Tuesday.

In one of the strikes, Hamas members on the verge of firing mortar shells at Israel were hit, the army said.

A statement released by the army said Israel holds Hamas responsible for maintaining the calm and will act determinedly against those seeking to harm Israeli citizens.

Late Monday early warning sirens alerted residents in Beersheba and the surrounding area to an incoming rocket attack. One Grad rocket fired from Gaza exploded in an area north of the city, causing no damage or injury, the army said.
