Israeli jets strike Gaza in retaliation after rocket siren forces Netanyahu to seek shelter


The Israeli military has carried out a series of retaliatory strikes against alleged ‘terrorist targets’ in Gaza, after rocket fire from the Palestinian enclave forced PM Netanyahu to interrupt a campaign speech and seek cover.

The IDF confirmed its warplanes and helicopters struck several targets belonging to Hamas, including the group’s “military complexes,” early Thursday morning.

The strikes come in retaliation for a single rocket allegedly fired from the Gaza Strip towards the southern city of Ashkelon  where the embattled Israeli Prime Minister was holding a campaign event.

Forced to briefly flee the stage, Netanyahu issued a thinly veiled threat upon his return, remembering an Islamic Jihad commander, Baha Abu Al-Atta, who was “no longer around” following a targeted assassination by Israeli forces.
