Over the weekend, 19 missiles were launched from the Gaza Strip, aimed at killing Israeli civilians. Fortunately, the missile fire did not amount to any injuries or casualties and hit mostly open fields.

One missile fired from Gaza was intercepted by the Iron Dome system. The Israeli Air Force (IAF) retaliated with four different air strikes on Gaza. On Thursday night Israel targeted two terrorist cells, and on Friday an additional terrorist compound in the southern part of the Gaza Strip was bombed. On Saturday, the IAF targeted a weapons manufacturing site.
IDF (Zahal) sees the Hamas terror organization as solely responsible for any terror activity emanating from the Gaza Strip and will continue to pursue and stand against any terror activity aimed at its citizens.
