Overnight, IAF aircraft targeted a weapon manufacturing facility, a terror activity site and a terror tunnel in the northern Gaza Strip as well as a smuggling tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.
The sites were targeted in direct response to the ongoing rocket fire aimed at southern Israel. 15 rockets hit Israel this month, hitting a home on two separate occasions- causing damage.
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.
