(JNS) The Israeli military on Monday conducted an airstrike against a Hamas outpost in the southern Gaza Strip in response to a rocket fired into Israeli territory earlier in the day, the military said in a statement.

“We will protect Israeli civilians from terror,” the Israel Defense Forces posted on its official Twitter feed.

No Israeli casualties or damage were reported.

This was the first rocket fire from Gaza since Sept. 15, when terrorist forces in the Strip launched 15 rockets into Israel in response to the signing at the White House of the Abraham Accords peace agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
