HAMAR ROCKET THREAT: 40% of civilians in Israel are in danger of Hamas rockets

Lt Col. Peter Lerner, IDF (Zahal) Spokesperson: “The IDF (Zahal) targeted sites that were part of the infrastructure used to terrorize Israel and its civilians. The daily reality of Israelis exposed to rocket attacks is unbearable, incomprehensible and immoral. We will continue to act against the threats emanating from Hamas’ Gaza Strip; they must be held accountable for allowing the attacks to continue unhindered.”
