( The Israeli Air Force on Saturday night struck five terrorist sites in the Gaza Strip in response to recent Palestinian rocket fire, Israel Hayom reported.

Earlier Saturday, a rocket fired from Gaza exploded in an open area in the Ashkelon region. No injuries or damage were reported. On Thursday, terrorists in Gaza had fired four rockets into southern Israel, prompting sirens to go off in the Shaar Hanegev region and Sderot.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner of the Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson’s Unit said, “Hamas rocket terrorism is an intolerable reality Israelis should not have to accept.”
