Overnight, IAF aircraft targeted four targets in the Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.
These sites were targeted in response to the firing of a rocket from the Gaza Strip at the city of Be’er Sheva.
In a separate incident, IDF soldiers identified a squad of terrorists planning to fire rockets at Israel. IAF aircraft thwarted the attempt, confirming a hit.
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.
