In Response to Rocket Fire, IAF Targets Smuggling Tunnel and Terror Activity Site in Gaza

Overnight, Israeli Air Force (IAF) aircraft targeted a smuggling tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip and a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip.

Direct hits were confirmed.

The targeting of these sites comes as a response to the barrage of Grad rockets, Qassam rockets and mortar shells fired from Gaza at the Israeli home front in the south over the past few days.

Since Saturday’s mortar attack, over 25 rockets and mortar shells hit Israeli territory, including 4 Grad rockets fired at the cities of Ashkelon, Ashdod and Be’er Sheva.
