The Israel Defense Forces struck targets in the central Gaza Strip in response to rockets fired by terror groups.
By World Israel News Staff
On Saturday night, two projectiles were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory.
In response, IDF fighter jets and attack helicopters struck a number of Hamas terror targets in the central Gaza Strip.
During the strike a military compound used by the Hamas terror organization was struck. This strike will impede the Hamas terror organization’s future abilities.
The IDF views terror activity aimed at Israel with great severity and says it is prepared for various scenarios.
“The Hamas terror organization is responsible for all events transpiring in the Gaza Strip and emanating from it, and will bear the consequences for its actions against Israeli civilians,” the IDF said.
Last Monday, the IDF retaliated for another rocket attack.
“Air-raid sirens sounding in southern Israel,” the IDF tweeted on Sunday night. “One rocket was just fired from Gaza into Israel,” it posted soon thereafter.
Within hours, the military followed up and announced that in response to the “projectile…launched from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory,” Israeli “aircraft and fighter jets targeted a number of Hamas terror targets in the southern Gaza Strip.”
They included “a training compound and military infrastructures used by the Hamas terror organization.” Israel said it was impeding the “future abilities” of the terrorists.
