IDF strikes Hamas targets in Gaza Strip in response to rocket attacks
MilitaryEzyInfo.com – According to an Israel Defense Forces spokesman, the targets attacked included a training center, a developing air defense missile position, a concrete production plant, and the attack infrastructure for Hamas terror tunnels.
A spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces confirmed that fighter jets and other aircraft have struck a number of locations, including Hamas training centers and terror tunnel infrastructure. According to the statement, the action was in response to a rocket explosion inside Israel.
The air force struck Hamas terror targets in the Gaza Strip this evening (Saturday). According to an IDF spokesman, the targets for fighters and others included a Hamas training center, anti-aircraft artillery launchers, a concrete factory that had been tunneled for the terrorists, as well as the organization’s armory and terrorist tunnel infrastructure. This was in response to the launch of a rocket aimed at Israel, which exploded earlier in an open area of the Eshkol Regional Council. There were no casualties or property damage.
This was the second night in a row of shooting from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory. Last night, the Air Force attacked Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in response to a rocket that exploded in an open area near Sderot. The attacks included weapons manufacturing facilities, arms smuggling tunnels, and Hamas military bases.
The latest rockets fired from the Gaza Strip came during Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Be’er Sheva on Election Day last month, when they exploded in an open field near the city. An Israel Defense Forces spokesman said shells fired from the Gaza Strip were detected, and an exo-atmospheric alert was subsequently issued. There were no casualties or damage.
Over the next few hours, IDF fighter jets and helicopters attacked Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in response to the shelling, an IDF spokesman said.
