In response to rocket fire towards the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council on Monday afternoon, the IAF targeted two terror sites in the central and southern Gaza Strip. This terror infrastructure was used to enhance terror capabilities against Israel. Direct hits were confirmed.

“The terrorists and their infrastructure operating in the Gaza Strip will not succeed in their grotesque intentions,” said Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF (Zahal) Spokesman. “The IDF (Zahal) will seek them out, eliminate their capabilities and pursue them wherever they may hide. Hamas and its terrorist servants are not immune; it is our moral obligation and calling to protect Israel against such atrocious acts.”
