iStockphoto/Thinkstock(JERUSALEM) -- Israeli Defense Forces continued to crack down on Hamas on Thursday morning, striking 15 more targets.

The IDF said that Israeli air forces "carried out a precision strike against 15 Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip." Among the targets were concealed rocket launchers, weapon storage facilities and terror activity sites.

The strikes reportedly happened just before 3 a.m. local time, about one hour before the morning call to prayer. The strikes are in response to rockets launched into Israel by Palestinian militants. Medical sources say at least ten Palestinians may have been injured in Thursday morning's strikes.
