The IDF attacked a military compound belonging to Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip early Monday morning, the Israeli army reported.

The attack was carried out in response to the attempted infiltration by Hamas with an improvised explosive device on Sunday.

In a statement Monday morning, the IDF said that they view Hamas' attempts to turn the border fence into a combat zone and destroy Israel's security and defense infrastructures with "great severity."

The IDF said that it will not "allow cynical use of civilians as a cover for terrorist activity against Israeli citizens and IDF forces, and will respond to all attempts at this kind of terrorism."

Hamas "is solely responsible for what is happening in the Gaza Strip and from above and below the ground," the report concluded.
