In Response to Rocket Fire, IAF Targets Weapon Storage Facility

A short while ago, IAF aircraft targeted a weapon storage facility in the northern Gaza Strip. A direct hit was confirmed.

The targeting of the facility is in response to the rockets fired at Israel. More than 130 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip, and struck major population centers in southern Israel in the last 35 hours.

The IDF (Zahal) is prepared to defend the residents of Israel and will respond with strength and determination against any attempt to execute terrorist attacks. Hamas uses other terror organizations to carry out terror attacks against the State of Israel and will bear the consequences of these actions in any future operation embarked upon by the IDF (Zahal) in order to eliminate the terror threat and restore the relative calm to the area.
