Israeli Air Force aircraft targeted and struck four terror sites in the central Gaza Strip as well as one in the northern section of Gaza in the very early morning hours on Friday, April 4.

The Israeli Defense Forces issued a statement that the strikes were in retaliation for an upsurge in violence directed towards civilian areas of Israel over the past month. Most recently, Palestinian Arab snipers targeted security personnel near the security fence in the northern Gaza strip which caused damage to an armored vehicle.

On Thursday evening, four rockets launched from Gaza struck southern Israel.

In the wake of Thursday’s attacks, the IDF responded.

“Civilians in southern Israel were forced to begin this month with an unacceptable  barrage of rockets,” said IDF Spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner.

“Hamas has a responsibility to cease and prevent acts of aggression emanating from the Gaza Strip. The IDF will retaliate, reciprocate and when required initiate the use of force in order to defend the civilians of the State of Israel from these unlawful terrorist actions,” Lerner stated.

Nearly 125 rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip towards Israel during the month of March. Of that number, 77 struck Israel. Between March 12 – 14 alone, 70 rockets fired from Gaza hit southern Israel.

    Great! But how come the aircraft displayed in the photo are IAI Tzukit (improved Fouga CM-170 Magister), which were previously used by the IAF for flight training – now retired?

    Although they were used briefly for combat during the 1967 conflict, they are not fighters – nor are they current.

  2. Andrew Kagan says:

    it's like a Mirage chasing an Ilyushin?

  3. Alan Kardon says:

    Unfortunately this is the only way that Israel will get peace. I applaud you IAF. Remember NEVER EVER AGAIN.

  4. Millie Kashuk says:

    Tell Kerry & Obama to worry about Putin not Israel…….

  5. Alan Kardon says:

    Dar – Never question success.

  6. Benjamin Fox says:

    An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a rocket for a rocket and see how long they last.

  7. Emmanuel Etchells-Ayre says:

    As he was with Moses, so he was with Joshua, and so he will be with Israel today, the Lord G-d of Israel will fight beside his chosen people ….. ייתכן שברכתו של היוצר הגדול להיות עם ישראל תמיד ….
    Jos 01:05 יש לא כל אדם יוכל לעמוד לפניך כל ימי חייך: כאשר הייתי עם משה, ולכן אני אהיה עמך: אני לא ייכשל בך, ולא להפקיר אותך.
    Jos 1:06 חזקים ויאמץ הלב: עבור אל העם הזה shalt אתה מחלק לירושת הארץ, אשר נשבעתי לאבותם לתת להם.
    Jos 1:07 להיות רק אתה חזק ואמיץ מאוד, שעשוי הינך שמרת לעשות על פי כל הדין, אשר עשה משה עבדי פקד: אל תפנה ממנו לימין או לשמאל, שיכול אתה לשגשג בכל אשר אתה מועדות פנים.

  8. Tibor Spitz says:

    It is smarter to listen to actions than analyze the illustrations of texts by the media. Jabotinsky would rejoice because this is the only answer & lesson to our enemies. Shabbat shalom, …

  9. Janet Clifford says:

    For every rocket in ten back.

  10. Ron Kall says:

    Thanks Clinton for the Oslo Accords which only accorded arrafat's plo to set up in Gaza! The Israeli leaders should hide in shame for doing this! Of course, they thought they would be getting peace!!?? Ahh the Jewish liberal mind!! All Gazans should be pushed over into Egypt and Gaza needs to be reclaimed as part of Israel. They have no interest in peace, so stop the BS and put and end to these attacks on your citizens!! Now!!

  11. Ron Kall says:

    Don't need fighter jets against ground targets, just bombers!

  12. Davina Paris says:

    Go Israel it,s time to fight back and fight back with both barrels.

  13. Tom Stewart says:

    Liberal left assisted in creating this mess!!!!

  14. Ken Kennemur says:

    just declare war and kill them all like Americans need to do to libtards

  15. Why are we not surprised by the PA pulling out, and changing the game. the PA is not interested in peace – and the first stumbling block int hese negotiations was their failure to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

  16. Run Guo says:

    God has supply Israel with the technology and weaponry to destroy her enemy. God has turned to Israel again, since 1948, that makes Israel invincible.

  17. Run Guo says:

    Gaza is part of the land God promised Jews in the contract he made with Abraham, it no late at all to get it back now. Your enemy will melt like wax.

  18. Every state has the right to defend itself against attack.

  19. Hatred. It boils like a cauldron all around Israel. The Sunni hate the Shia and the Americans and the Jews. The Shia hate the Sunni and the Jews and the Americans. The Jews hate all of the Arabs and hold the Americans in utter contempt for being the freirs that they are. And U.S. Americans, we scratchin our haid. We don't quite know what to make out of this whole kerfuffle. Xcept, we don't want to go over there and try to fix any more Countries.

  20. Glenn Nicks says:

    G_d bless Israel from an american who thinks our presidents need stay out of bull peace talks and just send you all arms and support we can PA doesnt want peace.
