The Israel Defense Forces has confirmed the military body is conducting retaliatory strikes against Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip following earlier rocket attacks, APA reports citing Sputnik.

A statement issued by the IDF states that targets included a "terrorist" tunnels in the Beit Hanun and Khan Younis areas, both of which "did not cross into Israeli territory and did not pose a threat to the residents of Israel."

"Two sites for the production of weapons used by the terrorist organization Hamas in the north and center of the Gaza Strip were attacked. The attack was carried out in response to Hamas' security violations in recent days," a translated statement issued by the IDF reads.

"The terrorist organization Hamas bears responsibility for what happened and is the one who will pay the price for the security violations against the State of Israel."

Preliminary details suggested missiles were fired in the vicinity of Hamas' Saladin camp, among other targets.
