IDF Continues to Respond to Rockets Fired at Israel
3 February 2009
In response to the barrage of Qassam rockets, mortar shells, and Grad missiles fired at Israel, the IAF attacked a number of targets throughout the Gaza Strip today (Feb. 4).
A Grad type missile was launched at the city of Ashkelon this morning. Over 30 Qassam rockets, mortar shells, and Grad missiles have been fired at Israel since the ceasefire began.
The targets struck by the IAF included five smuggling tunnels, a rocket launching site, and a Hamas outpost.
As the sole authority in the Gaza Strip, Hamas bears full responsibility for all terror originating within its area of control.
