In response to rocket fire, overnight the IAF targeted several sites of terror during an extensive operation in the Gaza Strip. Hits were confirmed.

These terror sites were targeted in response to yesterday’s firing of rockets at the city of Be’er Sheva and other Western Negev communities.

The IDF (Zahal) will respond harshly  to any attempt to use terror against the State of Israel, and will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli citizens or IDF (Zahal) soldiers. The IDF (Zahal) holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for maintaining the calm in the Gaza Strip and for any terrorist activity emanating from it.
