In Response to Rocket Fire, IAF Targets Terrorist Sites in Southern Gaza Strip, 10 May 2010

The Israel Air Force struck two terrorist sites in the southern Gaza Strip overnight.
The attack is in response to the rocket that hit Israeli territory on Saturday night, landing in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council.
Approximately 50 rockets have landed in Israeli territory since the beginning of 2010, and over 330 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel since the end of operation Cast Lead.
The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm the citizens of the State of Israel and will continue to operate against those who use terror. The IDF holds Hamas as solely responsible for maintaining peace and quiet in the Gaza Strip.
