Israel strikes Gaza for 2nd night in response to rocket fire (VIDEO)

Israel strikes Gaza for 2nd night in response to rocket fire (VIDEO)
The IDF has struck “terrorist targets” in the Gaza Strip for the second night in a row. The strikes were launched in retaliation for rocket fire from the enclave which reportedly hit a Jewish educational facility in Sderot.

The strikes on early Friday morning reportedly targeted at least two locations around Gaza City, in the vicinity of the airstrikes Israel has conducted a day earlier. Following the initial air strikes, the IDF artillery fired two shells east of Rafah in the southern Strip, a Wafa correspondent reports, noting that it is difficult to assess the casualties or damage yet.

The Israeli military has admitted to carrying out the raids, tweeting that while “terror targets civilians, Israel targets terror.”

Earlier, a rocket fired from Gaza struck a Chabad Yeshiva Jewish religious school in the southern town of Sderot, causing damage but no injuries. Tel Aviv has repeatedly initiated retaliatory strikes against Hamas, blaming the organization in charge of the enclave for everything that happens there.
