The Israeli military early Friday announced it had launched airstrikes on “terror sites in Gaza,” a retaliatory move after rockets blamed on the militant group Hamas were fired on Tel Aviv.
“We have just started striking terror sites in Gaza. Details to follow,” the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) tweeted.

A Hamas naval base was targeted, the outlet reported, citing Palestinian media.
