According to the same sources, one of the strike’s targets was a training camp of Hamas’ military wing—the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades—near Gaza City. Several Kassam and Grad rockets have been fired from Gaza in recent days, and the IDF responded with airstrikes against different targets in the Strip.
On Wednesday [August 3], another rocket exploded in the Kiryat Gat area. A resident of one of the moshavim in the area was hurt as he stumbled while running to a fortified area.
A week earlier, a Lassam rocket fired from the Gaza Strip exploded near a Bedouin tent in the south, moderately wounding 55-year-old Fatma Saria. The IDF struck targets in the Gaza Strip in response to the attacks.
