Notwithstanding the fact that the entire world is focused on fighting the coronavirus pandemic, Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired a rocket into southern Israel over the weekend.
The IDF reported that the rocket fell in the town of Sderot on Friday evening.
The terrorists mounted the attack despite the fact that Israel is extending aid and assistance to Palestinians in the battle against the deadly COVID-19 virus.
In response to the rocket attack on Friday evening, Israeli tanks and aircraft struck three sites belonging to the Hamas terror group. The Israeli military said the targets were “infrastructure used for underground activity,” without elaborating.
While no specific Palestinian group claimed responsibility for launching the rocket, the Iranian proxy Palestinian Islamic Jihad has mounted the most recent missile attacks on the Jewish state.
Israel holds Hamas responsible for all attacks originating from the enclave, because the brutal terror group holds itself out as the Strip’s official governing authority.
Israel has recorded 16 deaths from COVID-19 as of Monday and over 4,300 infections.
