Israel’s Air Force bombed four targets in the Gaza Strip in retaliation for a rocket attack on Beersheba.

One Palestinian was killed and at least two injured during the early Tuesday attack, according to reports citing sources in Gaza. The Israel Defense Forces said that all the targets were successfully hit.

The Air Force on Tuesday morning also struck a squad of terrorists preparing to fire rockets at Israel; the attack was thwarted, the IDF said.

“The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip,” the IDF said in a statement.

On Monday night a long-range Grad rocket fired from Gaza struck Beersheba. Israeli protesters living in a large tent city in the city rushed to a nearby building for shelter, Ynet reported.
