Following an operational assessment in the field, an IDF (Zahal) force engaged in routine operational activity in the Gaza Strip opened controlled fire against suspicious targets.
Two mortar shells were then launched at the IDF (Zahal) soldiers, causing no damage or casualties.
In response to this mortar fire, IAF aircraft targeted the terrorist squad responsible and identified a hit.
Terrorist organizations constantly attempt to attack Israeli civilians and soldiers. The IDF (Zahal) holds the Hamas terrorist organization fully responsible for all Gaza Strip attacks and will not tolerate any such attacks.
