IDF Response to Rockets Fired at Israel Yesterday

In response to the barrage of Qassam rockets, mortar shells, and Grad missiles fired at Israel in recent days, the Israel Air Force attacked a number of targets in the southern Gaza Strip a short while ago.

Two Qassam rockets were launched at Israel yesterday. Over thirty five Qassam rockets, mortar shells, and Grad missiles were fired at Israel since the holding of fire.

The targets included two Hamas outposts in the southern and northern Gaza Strip.

As the sole authority in the Gaza Strip, Hamas bears full responsibility for all terror activities originating within its area of control.
