A short while ago, a Grad rocket was fired from the northern Gaza Strip at the communities of the Hevel Lakhish Regional Council. In response, an IAF aircraft targeted the launch site where the squad was located.
Since the beginning of 2011, over 340 rockets and mortars fired from Gaza hit the Israeli home front, four of which were fired just this week.
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.
