Over 505 rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israel this year, including over 45 this month
Early this morning (Wednesday, October 17), IAF aircraft targeted a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip. A direct hit was confirmed. The site was targeted in response to the rocket fire at southern Israel. Since the beginning of 2012, more than 505 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip hit Israel, including over 45 during October alone. 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.
