In Response to Terror Attack, IAF Targets Four Sites in the Gaza Strip

Terror attack in southern Israel

Overnight, IAF aircraft targeted two terror tunnels and a weapons storage facility in the southern Gaza Strip, as well as a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip.

The terror tunnel was intended for the infiltration of terrorists into Israeli territory and for executing terror attacks against Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers.

The four sites were targeted in response to the terror attacks executed near Eilat on Thursday, and the rockets fired from Gaza at Israel since.

The IDF will not tolerate any malicious attempt to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers, and will not hesitate to respond with strength and determination to any element that uses terror against the State of Israel, until calm is restored. The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
