According to Israeli officials, the attack started on Wednesday afternoon with the first rocket falling in a garden in the city of Sderot, leaving no casualties. At midnight, Israeli forces responded with strong airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.

Hamas later continued its offensive, firing at least four rockets from Gaza, which were intercepted by Israeli air defenses. The IDF said it had struck Hamas facilities, as well as the tunnel complex in which it said rockets were being made.
