The Israeli Air Force struck Hamas targets for a second time, on Sunday night, in retaliation for a rocket attack on Sderot at about 2:30 in the afternoon.

B’chasdei Hashem, there were no injuries in Sderot, even though a rocket landed between two residential houses in the city.

The IAF hit back in the afternoon and then again on Sunday night, when Palestinian sources said they struck a Hamas military wing position in Beit Hanoun in the north Gaza Strip, which was the origin of the attack on Sderot.

Huge explosions could be heard across the border by Israelis in the communities near the Gaza border.
