Over the past 24 hours two rockets were launched from Gaza towards Israel, endangering 13,500 residents of the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. One of the rockets was launched shortly after midnight, whereas the second was launched just several hours ago.

In response, IAF aircrafts targeted terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip. A weapon manufacturing facility was targeted in the Central Gaza Strip, and a weapon storage facility was targeted in the Northern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF (Zahal) Spokesman: “Terrorists, under the Hamas rule, have turned Gaza, into a heinous sanctuary for rocket terrorism employed against innocent Israeli civilians. The manufacturing of rockets in Gaza has no other purpose except to target Israel and its sovereignty putting thousands of lives at risk. We will not tolerate daily aggression from the Hamas ruled territory and are morally obligated to act against those threatening our communities, our towns and our cities.”
