These sites were targeted in response to the firing of five rockets at Israel’s southern communities during the previous day. Since the beginning of July, over 15 rockets have hit the Israeli home front, causing some structural damage.

The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers, and will respond with determination to any attempt to use terror against the State of Israel. The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
