Air Force ‘Retaliates’ for Latest Rocket Attack

The Israeli Air Force attacked two terror targets in Gaza Thursday night, a short time after terrorists in attacked the coastal area south of Ashkelon for the second time in 24 hours.

Gaza sources said that the Air Force retaliation caused no injuries. The IDF stated,  “A weapon manufacturing facility was targeted in the Central Gaza Strip, and a weapon storage facility was targeted in the Northern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.”

The military routinely carries out “tit-for-tat” retaliations that strike terror targets that are known to exist but which remain untouched so long as Hamas and other terrorist groups stay quiet, which usually is not for very long.

  1. Israel does not attack but defends itself when attacked. That is not only the right to defend ones self but it is the only sensible thing to do in order to survive.

    One day they will overstep their boundary, they will do something horrible, and then the PM will be forced to act. That is the only way its done, out of sheer lack of alternatives. Of course there is always fratricide, but I don't think Bibi is into that game. He loves his country and country men too much for giving up. Unlike Livni and the left, he believes in Israel and her creative energies, all he needs is a little shot of testosterone, yes, a boost of that to do what needs to be done. When the arabs step over that line, there will be fury and retaliation that will make everyone who betrays Israel then twice. Shalom and Am Yisrael Chai, Deborah bee
