A short while ago, IAF aircraft targeted a terrorist squad in the central Gaza Strip. The squad targeted was responsible for the rockets fired at Israel over the past few hours. A hit was confirmed.

During 2012, over 290 rockets were fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip.

The IDF (Zahal) will not tolerate any attempt by terrorist groups to target Israeli civilians and IDF (Zahal) soldiers, and will continue to operate against those who use terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
