Helicopter gunships of the Israel Air Force attacked a terrorist target in Bethlehem last night (3.12). The IAF attack was in response to exchanges of fire during the night in the area of Rachel’s Tomb.
No casualties were incurred by the IDF during the exchanges of fire.
The target attacked was positively identified as one of the sources of the fire.
It is important to note that the target chosen has served as a hide out for terrorists throughout the past incidents, from which they fired on Rachel’s Tomb.
