(JNS.org) The Israel Air Force struck seven terror sites in the Gaza Strip Tuesday night in response to several rockets fired at southern Israel from the area. The air force targeted several rocket launching, terror activity and weapons manufacturing sites in Gaza, the IDF Spokesman’s Office said.
Earlier in the evening, the Iron Dome system had intercepted two rockets. A third landed in open territory and another rocket landed before the Israeli border and injured four Palestinians, including a child, according to latest reports. Southern Israeli residents had to go into bomb shelters in response to the sounding of a Code Red rocket siren.
“The Hamas terror organization and its offshoots are responsible for what happens in its jurisdiction,” the Spokesman’s Office said, reported the Jerusalem Post.
On Sunday the IAF had struck four other Gaza sites in response to rockets fired at Israel from the area Saturday. Security sources say small jihadi organizations as likely to be behind the rocket attacks.
