In Response to Rocket Fire, IAF Targets Terror Sites in the Gaza Strip

Overnight, the IAF targeted a terror tunnel in the central Gaza Strip, a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip and a second terror activity site in the central Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed. Secondary blasts were identified in two of the three targets.

The terror tunnel was intended to be used by terrorists to infiltrate into Israel and to carry out terror attacks against Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers.

The targeting of the sites was in response to intensive rocket fire into Israeli territory over the course of the day; five military-use projectiles were fired from the Gaza Strip landing in southern Israel.

Over fourty mortar shells, Qassam rockets and Grad Rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip and landed in Israeli territory since the beginning of 2011.

The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for maintaining the calm in the Gaza Strip and for any terrorist activity emanating from it. The IDF will respond harshly to any attempt to use terror against the citizens of the State of Israel.
