In Response to Rocket Fire, IAF Targets Terror Activity Site

IDF Thwarts Rocket Fire Attempt

In a separate incident earlier today, fire was opened at IDF soldiers performing routine operational activities near the security fence in the central Gaza Strip.

The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli residents, and will 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.
