Over the weekend, a total of rockets 18 rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza. No injuries or damages were reported as a result of the attacks. The Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), a terror group allied with Hamas, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli citizens and IDF soldiers and will continue to act decisively and strongly against anyone who uses terrorism against Israel,” an IDF spokesman said. “The Hamas terrorist organization is the address and bearer of responsibility.”
