Following an operational assessment in the field, an IDF (Zahal) force engaged in routine operational activity in the Gaza Strip opened controlled fire against suspicious targets.

During the course of the activity, two mortar shell launches against the force were identified. No casualties or damages were reported.

In response to this mortar fire, IAF aircraft targeted the terrorist squad who was responsible for the firing, identifying a hit.

Terrorist organizations constantly attempt to attack Israeli civilians and soldiers. The IDF (Zahal) holds the Hamas, a terrorist organization, fully responsible for all that takes place within Gaza strip.
