IDF Response to the Attacks Against Israeli Civilians and IDF Forces from the Gaza Strip
Earlier this evening February 6, 2017, the IAF targeted three Hamas posts in the northern Gaza Strip.
The IDF targeted these locations in response to the projectile fired from the Gaza Strip at Israeli communities earlier today and the attack against IDF forces operating near the border with the southern Gaza Strip as well as other incidents from Gaza in the last month.
Lt. Col. Peter Lerner IDF Spokesman: "Hamas is accountable for the unacceptable aggression that threatens the wellbeing of Israelis and breaches Israeli sovereignty. This reality jeopardizes the stability and security in the region. The IDF will continue to defend Israeli civilians against the threats emanating from Hamas' Gaza."
