In response to two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel a short while ago, IAF aircraft targeted a terrorist squad that fired a rocket at IDF soldiers. A hit was confirmed.
 
During the beginning of the month, IDF attacked terror tunnels in the northern Gaza Strip in response to rocket fire targeting Israeli civilian communities. Direct hits were confirmed and all aircraft returned safely to base.
 
Since the beginning of 2012, over 270 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip, hitting Israeli territory and threatening the lives of over one million Israeli civilians.
 
The IDF will continue to operate against anyone who uses terror against the residents of the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
