In Response to Rocket Fire at Israel and the Injury of a Civilian, IAF Targets Terror Activity Site and Smuggling Tunnel

Overnight, IAF aircraft targeted a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip and a smuggling tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.

The sites were targeted in response to the rocket fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel’s southern communities during the previous day, moderately injuring a middle-aged woman.

The IDF will not allow the Israeli southern communities to continue living under constant threat, and will continue to respond with determination to any attempt to use terror against the citizens of Israel. The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
