Hamas Kidnapping Attempts During Upcoming Holiday Thwarted

Over the weekend, in a joint IDF-ISA activity, an IAF aircraft targeted a Hamas terror squad in the southern Gaza Strip, following the squad’s intentions to execute kidnappings during the upcoming Passover holiday in the Sinai Peninsula and in Israel. A hit was confirmed.

Hamas continues to operate in every way possible in order to harm Israeli civilians.

The IDF will respond with strength and determination to any attempt to use terror against Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers. The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
