IDF Response to the Continues Rocket and Mortar Shell Fire at Israel
In response to the barrage of Qassam rockets, mortar shells, and Grad missiles fired at Israel in recent days, the Israel Air Force attacked a Hamas target in the southern Gaza Strip a short while ago.
Two Mortar Shells were launched at Israel yesterday. Over forty rockets, mortar shells, and Grad missiles were fired at Israel since the holding of fire.
The target attacked was a Hamas outpost in the southern Gaza Strip.
As the sole authority in the Gaza Strip, Hamas bears full responsibility for all terror activities originating within its area of control.
