Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces says that within an hour of a rocket barrage from Gaza on central Israel on Friday, it struck and killed the cell behind the attack.

It says reservist troops of the Jerusalem Brigade’s reconnaissance battalion spotted the cell on the roof of a building, and called in an airstrike.

The army says that over the past day, it carried out strikes against dozens of targets and Hamas operatives in the Gaza Strip.

The sites included command centers, rocket launch sites and weapons production labs, it says.
