A day after the withdrawal of IDF forces from Khan Yunis, the trickle of rockets into southern Israel continued. After three rockets were shot yesterday, another was launched this morning from central Gaza - the exact location from where the IDF withdrew its forces.

The rocket was fired at the kibbutzim of Ein Hasholesh and Re'im. A rocket siren was activated in open areas. There are no reports of damage or casualties.

Yesterday's launch pads were destroyed

After Hamas launched missiles at southern Israel from a humanitarian area in Khan Yunis, the IDF launched a precise attack and eliminated the launching platforms used in the attack.

According to a statement from the IDF spokesperson, following intelligence information and operational identifications compiled by the Southern Command, IAF fighter jets struck three launch sites used by Hamas.

Prior to the attack, the IDF ensured the evacuation of the civilians and accurately attacked the launch pads. According to the IDF: "This is another clear example of the cynical and systematic exploitation that Hamas makes of humanitarian facilities and spaces for terrorist purposes, while using the civilian population as a human shield."
