Overnight, the Israel Air Force struck a terror tunnel and two smuggling tunnels in the southern Gaza Strip .The terror tunnel was intended for infiltrating into Israel and executing terror attacks against IDF soldiers and Israeli civilians.
The attack is in response to the security related incidents that took place throughout the week.
More than 100 rockets and mortars have been fired at Israeli territory since the beginning of 2010, and over 400 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel since the end of Operation Cast Lead.
The IDF remains committed to protecting the citizens of Israel and will continue to act against terror. The IDF holds Hamas solely responsible for terror emanating from the Gaza Strip.
