In Response to Intensive Rocket Fire, IAF Targets Terror-Linked Sites in the Gaza Strip, 19 Nov 2010

A short while ago, the IAF struck three terror sites in the Gaza Strip. Direct hits were identified.

The targeting of these terror-linked sites was in response to the firing of rockets at Israel’s Southern communities over the past two days: ten mortar shells were fired and landed in open territories and a Grad rocket was fired early this morning, causing damage.

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.
