This evening, Saturday, November 6th 2010, the IAF targeted two terror-linked sites in the Southern Gaza Strip.
Direct hits as well as secondary blasts were confirmed.
The targeting of these terror-linked sites was in response to this morning’s Qassam rocket fire from Gaza. The rocket landed in Sdot Negev Regional Council this morning.
Since the beginning of 2010, approximately 180 Grad missiles, Qassam rockets and mortar shells fired from the Gaza Strip landed in Israeli territory.
The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for maintaining the calm in the Gaza Strip and for any terrorist activity emanating from it. The IDF will also continue to respond harshly to any attempt to use terror against the State of Israel.
