Man injured in mortar attack airlifted to Soroka Hospital after sustaining light wounds; attack follows warning by Ashkenazi that security situation along Gaza border "very fragile, may deteriorate rapidly."
The Israeli Air Force early Thursday morning struck three terror sites in the Gaza Strip, responding to a barrage of mortar shells fired Wednesday night in which one Israeli man was wounded.
The IDF spokesperson said that the air strikes targeted a weapons facility in central Gaza and two centers of terrorist activity in the northern Strip.
Four to five mortar shells were fired from the Gaza Strip into the Eshkol regional council Wednesday night, hitting an area resident. He suffered light wounds to his upper body.
The wounded man was airlifted by the IDF to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba while fully conscious. The attack followed another mortar attack in Sha'ar Hanegev. There were no injuries in the earlier attack.
