Rocket Launching Device in Northern Gaza Targeted

Earlier today, Israeli Air Force (IAF) aircraft targeted a rocket launching device in the northern Gaza Strip from which a Grad missile was fired at Ashdod last night. A hit was confirmed.

The Grad missile landed last night 5 kilometers south of the port city of Ashdod in which over 200,000 Israeli residents live. Shortly thereafter, the IAF had targeted the terrorist in the northern Gaza Strip from which the Grad was fired, identifying a hit.

This morning, an additional Grad missile was launched from the Gaza Strip and landed in the city of Be’er Sheva, in addition to approximately 7 other military-use projectiles which hit the Sdot Negev, Sha’ar Hanegev, and Eshkol Regional Councils.
