In Response to Massive Rocket Attack, IDF Targets Terror Infrastructure in Gaza
Israel Defense Forces
In response to the massive rocket attack that hit Israel earlier this evening, IAF targeted 29 terror sites in the Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.
In today's attack 41 rockets struck in Israel, 5 hit populated areas and 3 were intercepted by the iron dome defense system. This is the most substantial rocket attack from the Gaza Strip since Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012.
Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman: "This retaliation was precise and prompt. We targeted the infrastructure that serves the terrorists while they train, plan and implement their hideous attacks. They will not be permitted to conspire in the safety of their terrorist temples".
