In response to rocket fire toward Israel, the Israeli Air Force targeted and struck three terror sites in the central Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.

These terror-linked sites were targeted in response to rockets being fired at Israel’s southern communities over the past few days. Four Qassam rockets have landed in the Ashkelon Shore Regional Council since Monday morning.

The IDF (Zahal) holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for maintaining the calm in the Gaza Strip and for any terrorist activity emanating from it. The IDF (Zahal) will also continue to respond harshly to any attempt to use terror against the State of Israel.
