In response to rocket fire, IAF aircraft targeted a terror tunnel and a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip overnight. Direct hits were confirmed.
Tunnels such as this one are intended for infiltrating into Israel and executing terror attacks against Israeli civilians and IDF (Zahal) soldiers.
The IDF (Zahal) will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli citizens and IDF (Zahal) soldiers, and will continue to 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.
