Overnight, IAF aircraft targeted two terror activity sites in the northern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.
The targeting of these sites is in response to the rockets fired at Israel. Over 20 rockets have been fired at Israel over the course of February, and earlier tonight IAF aircraft targeted a terrorist squad preparing to fire rockets at Israel.

Earlier, IAF aircraft thwarted an attempt by a terrorist squad to fire rockets at Israel from the northern Gaza Strip.
The IDF (Zahal) will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
