Two rockets were fired into southern Israel from the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, and Israel Air Force planes began striking Hamas targets in Gaza on Thursday.

An Islamist Salafist group called the Omar Brigades took to Twitter to claim responsibility for the rocket firing, which it said was to avenge Hamas’ killing of an Isis supporter in Gaza. news50sf80s8gf
