Hamas Warns It Won't Sit Idly By as IDF Strikes Gaza

In the wake of a rocket attack on the southern Israeli town of Sderot, the IDF carried out both airstrikes and artillery fire on terrorist targets in Gaza. The Times of Israel's Judah Ari Gross reports that the terror group has warned Israel against continued responses:

Hamas warned Wednesday evening it would not “sit idly by” if Israeli airstrikes on its installations in the Gaza Strip continued following a rocket attack on the Israeli city of Sderot earlier in the day.

“We condemn the Israeli escalation in the Gaza Strip and warn against its continuation. We emphasize that we will not be able to continue to sit idly by and allow it to continue,” the terror group’s spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said in a statement reported by the Safa news agency.

The Palestinian report also listed the targets IAF jets reportedly hit on Wednesday, including a marine police installation in northern Gaza, near Beit Lahia, and a Qassam Brigades site in Khan Younis in the southern strip...

The Israel Defense Forces confirmed the airstrikes, saying it targeted “a number of terror installations belonging to the Hamas terror group...”

The Israeli strikes are the second such attack of the day after the rocket fired from the coastal enclave struck Sderot. Earlier in the day, IDF tanks fired on Hamas targets in Beit Hanoun in the northeastern corner of the Strip
