The IDF says it carried out strikes against several Hamas rocket launchers in the Gaza Strip over the past day, including one that was in the middle of firing projectiles at Sderot.

It says troops of the 162nd Division operating in Jabaliya and the 636th Combat Intelligence Collection unit identified rockets being fired toward Sderot, and directed an aircraft to immediately strike the site.

Meanwhile, the Duvdevan unit raided a building used by Hamas operatives and found some 250 mortars, rockets, and RPGs, the IDF says.

Additionally, the IDF says the Navy carried out strikes against Hamas operatives that it had identified shooting at ground forces in Gaza.
