IAF Attacks Terror Squad Preparing to Launch Rocket
In a Joint IDF and ISA operation, the IAF targeted and identified hitting a squad of terror operatives who were preparing to fire rockets from the central Gaza strip into Israel.
More than 300 rockets and mortars were fired at Israel since the end of Operation Cast Lead. This is in comparison to over 3300 rockets and mortars that were fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip in the whole of 2008, prior to the operation.
The IDF will not tolerate the firing of rockets by terrorist organizations at Israel and will continue to respond against any attempt to disrupt the calm in Israel’s southern communities.
