Israel Air Force crafts attacked Thursday morning a rocket launching site in northern Gaza, and an offensive tunnel in the southern part of the strip. The IDF Spokesman’s office stated: “The IDF is set up and ready to defend the citizens of Israel and respond with strength and determination against any terrorist attempt.”
The spokesman added: “The Hamas, which is using other terrorist organizations to execute terror activities against Israel, will be responsible for any future response chosen by the IDF to remove the threat of terror and restore relative quiet in the region.”
Earlier, on Wednesday night, there were sirens in Beer Sheva after the detection of a Grad rocket that was launched at the city. But the Iron Dome system successfully shot the rocket down. Following that event, local mayors decided to close down the schools Thursday.
