Early on Monday morning (June 7), the Israeli Air Force targeted a terrorist squad preparing to fire rockets into Israel from the northern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were identified.

Over 10 rockets and mortars were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel in the last three weeks.

In a similar incident last week, in a joint IDF (Zahal)-ISA activity in the northern Gaza Strip, the IAF targeted a terrorist squad preparing to fire rockets into Israel. Direct hits, as well as secondary explosions proving the presence of explosive materials, were identified. According to Palestinians reports, three terror operatives were killed.

The IDF (Zahal) remains committed to protecting the citizens of Israel and will continue to act against terror. The IDF (Zahal) holds Hamas solely responsible for terror emanating from the Gaza Strip.
