Gaza Rocket Strikes Israel, Drawing IDF Response
Yesterday, July 1st, 2016, a rocket was launched from the Gaza Strip at southern Israel. The rocket hit in the city of Sderot, causing damage to a building.
In response to the attack IAF aircraft targeted four locations that were components of Hamas' operational infrastructure in the northern and central Gaza Strip.
Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman: “Over the past two days Israeli civilians have witnessed and experienced the devastating effects of incitement fueled terrorism based on hatred and radical beliefs. The rocket attack today in Sderot is a horrific reminder of the intentions of terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip to target communities, people, men women and children. In our efforts to ensure stability, we continue to defend against those who put innocent lives in harm’s way”
