Gaza Rocket Threat

Earlier this morning, rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip towards Israel. One rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome Missile Defense System above the city of Ashkelon. IDF forces are searching the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council for the additional projectile.

Yesterday, a mortar shell fired from the Gaza Strip landed in Israel near the security fence in the Southern Gaza Strip.

IDF Spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said: “This targeted strike, based on IDF intelligence and advanced air force capabilities, is an immediate response to the terrorist aggression and its infrastructure in Gaza. Hamas must take responsibility for these actions or pay the price for inaction. We will continue to safeguard the civilians of the State of Israel, and prevent future attempts of terrorism formulating in the Gaza Strip.”
