In response to the rocket fire aimed at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip yesterday, the Israeli Air Force has targeted several terror facilities in Gaza overnight. Over 620 rockets were fired at Israel in 2011, and over 21 rockets since the start of 2012.
An IAF aircraft targeted two weapon storing facilities in the northern Gaza Strip, three terror tunnels in the southern Gaza Strip and a weapon manufacturing facility in the central Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed as well as secondary explosions at several targets.
The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, 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.
