IAF Targets Two Hamas-Linked Sites in Gaza in Joint Activity with ISA In Response to Rocket Fire

Last night in a joint IDF-ISA activity, the IAF targeted a Hamas terror activity center in the central Gaza Strip and a smuggling tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.

The IAF targeted these terror-related sites in response to yesterday morning’s firing of a Qassam Rocket at the Ashkelon Shore Regional Council, home to 13,000 residents.

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.
