In Response to Rocket Fire on Saturday Morning, IAF Struck Terrorist Sites in the Gaza Strip
Israel Air Force fighter jets recently targeted and identified hitting two weapons-manufacturing facilities in the northern and central Gaza Strip and one smuggling tunnel in Gaza's Rafah border area. The attacks were in response to the firing of a Qassam rocket at the city of Sderot on Saturday morning.
Nearly 270 rockets and mortar shells were fired at Israel since the end of Operation Cast Lead on January 18th 2009, in comparison to over 3300 rockets and mortars fired in the year before the operation. The last month had seen approximately 15 rockets and mortar shells fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip.
The IDF will not tolerate any attacks by terror organizations against Israel and its citizens.
