In a joint IDF-ISA activity, IAF aircraft identified a squad of terrorists preparing to launch rockets at Israel from the northern Gaza Strip, and thwarted the attempt by firing at them. A hit was confirmed.
The mentioned squad is known to have been involved in a number of cases of launching rockets at Israel in recent weeks, including the rocket that hit an abandoned building in the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council two days ago. The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians and will continue to operate against any organization which uses terror against the State of Israel. The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
