The IAF struck a rocket launcher ready to be fired at Israel. During Yom Kippur, three Kassams and one mortar shell were fired towards Israel.

On Monday (Sept. 28), the Israeli Air Force struck a rocket launcher ready to be fired into Israel from the northern Gaza Strip. The operation was coordinated with the Israel Security Agency, and the pilots identified hitting the target successfully.

During Yom Kippur, Palestinians fired three Kassam rockets at the western Negev, one of which exploded at noon in the Gaza Strip while the other two hit western Negev towns in the region. No casualties or injuries were reported. A mortar shell was also launched but exploded in Palestinian territory.

In separate incidents, Palestinians opened fire at an IDF force moving near the perimeter fence. The force returned fire towards the source.

Over the weekend before Yom Kippur, several mortar shells and Kassam rockets were fired in response to an IAF attack at a rocket launching squad ready to fire missiles towards Israel. In the attack, three Islamic Jihad terrorists were killed while preparing the Kassam rocket launchers to be fired at Israel.
