IDF Spokesperson: On Friday (December 19) a rocket was fired from Gaza at Israel, hitting the Eshkol Regional Council.
 In response, an IAF aircraft targeted a Hamas terror infrastructure site in the southern Gaza Stip.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman: "The IDF will not permit any attempt to undermine the security and jeopardize the well being of the civilians of Israel. The Hamas terrorist organization is responsible and accountable for today’s attack against Israel."

Prime Minister Netanyahu: "Israel’s security takes precedence over everything and I will not ignore the firing of even one rocket. Therefore, the Air Force responded to this firing by destroying a cement factory that served to rebuild the tunnels that we hit in Operation Protective Edge. Hamas bears the responsibility for any escalation. We will safeguard Israel’s security."
