Israeli Air Force Thwarts Rocket Launching Attempt

A short while ago, a squad of terrorists preparing to launch rockets at Israeli territory from the central Gaza Strip were identified by an (Israeli Air Force) IAF aircraft that thwarted the attempt by firing at them. A hit was confirmed.

In a separate incident, terrorists lightly injured the driver of an IDF vehicle, damaging it. The IDF vehicle was performing routine activity near the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip.

This week alone, terrorists in the Gaza Strip targeted Israeli civilians by launching three Qassam rockets into Israel. The Hamas terrorist organization–responsible for all terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip–is not enforcing a policy of restraint over the other terrorist organizations operating out of the Gaza Strip.
