Summary of Overnight Events

The Israeli Air Force struck the office of the Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh overnight. The office is used as a center for the planning, support and financing of terrorist activities against Israel. In addition, the office of the interior ministry, located in the same area, was also attacked. These offices of the Hamas government are located in Gaza City, and are considered a strategic target.

The IAF attacked 35 additional targets, including: tunnels in the Rafah border area, weapon storage facilities, Hamas outposts and an armed rocket launcher.

Navy forces also attacked a number of targets in the Gaza Strip including: Hamas outposts, training camps, guarding vessels used by Hamas naval forces and launching posts from which rockets are fired at Israel.

The IDF will continue its mission, attack the infrastructure and buildings that Hamas is using, and will operate against terrorist organizations and anyone who provides support to terrorism.
