In Response to Rocket Fire, IAF Targets Terror-Linked Sites in the Gaza Strip, 8 Dec 2010

Overnight, the IAF struck a weapons manufacturing site and a smuggling tunnel in the southern 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: three projectiles were launched and landed in Israel. Approximately 200 projectiles landed in Israel since the beginning of 2010.

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.
