Israeli airstrikes hit two terrorist targets in Gaza in retaliation for two rockets fired at southern Israel, including one that landed near a kindergarten.

Air Force planes on Tuesday night hit what the Israel Defense Forces spokesman called “a terror tunnel and a terror activity site” in northern Gaza.

“Tunnels such as this one are intended for infiltrating into Israel and executing terror attacks against Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers,” the IDF said in a statement.

The strikes came several hours after two rockets exploded in the Negev. The one that landed near the kindergarten hit a warehouse, Ynet reported.

An Israeli strike on Gaza Sunday night, in response to rocket fire on Israel, injured France’s consul to the Gaza Strip, his wife and daughter, the French Foreign Ministry said.
