In response to rocket fire from Gaza, an IAF aircraft targeted two terror activity sites in the northern Gaza Strip and a smuggling tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip last night. Direct hits were confirmed.

Rockets were fired from Gaza at Israel’s southern communities over the past few days. Overnight, two Grad rockets hit Israeli territory. Over 340 rockets and mortars have been fired at the Israeli home front from the Gaza Strip since the beginning of 2011.
