The Israel Air Force is continuing to retaliate against Gaza terrorists for the rocket fire launched against southern Israeli residents.

At least 15 surgical air strikes were carried out overnight into Thursday, the IDF said in a statement.

Hamas terrorist targets that were eliminated included “concealed rocket launchers, weapon storage facilities and terror activity sites,” the army spokesperson confirmed.

Local residents told international media that 15 people were injured in the air strikes, but the claims were not verified by Israeli sources.

Hamas for the first time in a long stretch took responsibility for several rocket attacks on Wednesday, claiming the attacks were launched to avenge the blood of a young Arab teen who was murdered earlier in the day.

It is not yet clear who killed 16 year old Muhammad Abu Khdeir, whose family apparently has a trouble history but no criminal record, police sources said.

The boy was allegedly kidnapped in Beit Hanina at about 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday, and his body was subsequently found in the Jerusalem forest at about 5:00 a.m., burnt and showing signs of other violence.

A black car was seen pulling up next to him in Beit Hanina, and three men allegedly forcing him into the car – but it is not known who they were, or whether they were Arabs or Jews, Israelis or residents of the Palestinian Authority.

Israeli officials sent a warning to Hamas officials in Gaza, informing them that quiet would be met by quiet, but that any more attacks would continue to be met in a similar strong-handed manner. If the attacks do not stop, Israel may soon be forced to stop them using stronger methods, Hamas was warned.

Foreign media outlets noted the Israeli military has begun to move troops towards the Gaza border.

  12. DO YOU KNOW THE DAMAGE TO THE OZONE LAYER ALL THEESE BOMBS ARE DOING ??????

  13. Keep up the pressure on those who support the total destruction of our Jewish people, as well as our nation Israel. We must seek Hashem in everything we do, as well as listen (Shema). Shalom

  14. Great start another 10000 would make my day :)

  16. Uzi Kattan says:

    How many caualties? Too few.

  17. Uzi Kattan says:

    A band aid solutions to pretend the government is doing something.

  18. Uzi Kattan says:

    Why warn them? They need to be in the houses so we can send them to meet their allah.

  19. a chief terrorist losing his impressive house lose also his influence, and for them is better to die than living without influence

  20. they deserve,but not the family;believe me they suffer more for loosing their houses than for the family

  21. This is like eating gefilte fish with tooth picks! The enemy is islam: "They Must Go!"

  22. What the world will see when they read this is that '15 people were injured.' It never acknowledges that these strikes were aimed at active Hamas terrorists, based on verifiable intelligence, whereas all of the rockets launched from Gaza are aimed entirely at residential, civilian targets. Whatever PR the 'palestinians' have used has certainly worked because whatever happens, all people see is how the poor, innocent 'palestinians' are being brutalized. The Unity Government should be made to understand that it will be held responsible for attacks from their zones of control. If what they are doing is declaring a state of war against Israel, I would not want to be them, for the short time they will continue to live.
