Hours after a Grad rocket was fired at the southern city of Beersheba, the Air Force retaliated by bombing four targets and a terror cell preparing to fire rockets at Israel from the Gaza Strip, the IDF said before dawn on Tuesday.
The army said all targets were hit, and that while carrying out the strikes, the terror cell was identified and hit just before firing the rockets in their possession.
Palestinian sources in Gaza said one person was killed and two others injured.
According to medical sources affiliated with Hamas, two other Palestinians were wounded during the strikes. Among them was a youth injured when a smuggling tunnel was bombed.
