(Communicated by the IDF Spokesman)

Israeli citizens are under relentless terror attacks on a daily basis. These attacks include the launching of projectile rockets from the Gaza Strip at Israeli civilians and civilian infrastructure.

In response, the IDF carried out an aerial attack on a Popular Resistance Committees terror target – a compound in which terrorists were trained to carry out attacks against Israel, late last night, June 8, 2006. Several terrorists were training in the compound preparing for a large scale terror attack at the time.

The Palestinian Authority is fully responsible for any attacks emanating from its territory. Unfortunately, it continues to take no action in order to prevent terror attacks against Israeli citizens.
