A short while ago, IAF aircraft targeted a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip. A direct hit was confirmed.
The site was targeted in response to this week’s rocket fire towards southern Israel. Since the beginning of 2012 more than 500 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip hit Israel, including over 40 in October alone.
The IDF (Zahal) will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
