Following the firing of mortar bombs at the Gush Katif settlements in the Gaza Strip this afternoon, the IDF struck a Palestinian police post near Khan Yunis using missiles. The attack was carried out following continuous requests to the Palestinian Security organs to stop the firing of mortar bombs from the territory of the Palestinian Authority. The IDF Spokesperson emphasizes that the IDF will continue to act as needed in order to prevent the terrorism and protect IDF soldiers and Israeli citizens.
