The Israel Defense Forces says it has carried out tank strikes against targets in the Gaza Strip following the rocket fire this morning on southern Israel.

The IDF adds that it has instructed residents of towns close to the border with the Palestinian enclave to remain close to bomb shelters or safe areas until further notice.

This morning, Palestinian terrorists launched four projectiles at southern Israel, following the death of hunger-striking Islamic Jihad member Khader Adnan while in Israeli custody.
