In Response to Rocket Fire IAF Targets Terror Tunnel and Terror Activity Site

In response to rocket fire, IAF aircraft targeted a terror tunnel and a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip overnight. Direct hits were confirmed. Tunnels such as this one are intended for infiltrating into Israel and executing terror attacks against Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers.

Since the beginning of October, more than 60 rockets and mortars were launched from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel, risking the lives of more than one million Israelis.

The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli citizens and IDF soldiers, and will continue to operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
