The IDF says it is carrying out airstrikes again in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli warplanes hit Hamas terror targets in the Palestinian territory earlier tonight, in response to dozens of rockets that were fired from Gaza into Israel throughout the day.

The IDF says it will soon release further details about the latest round of airstrikes.

The latest flare-up was set off when a senior member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group died in an Israeli prison on Tuesday morning, after an 86-day hunger strike.
