The Israeli Air Force targeted another Hamas terror site on Monday in retaliation for another rocket strike on Israel’s Gaza Belt communities.


The missile exploded in an open area in the Eshkol Region, adjacent to Gaza, and there were no injuries

The IDF did not detail exactly what “Hamas terror site” was hit and whether it was manned or unmanned.

The IDF Spokesman unit, as usual, issued a stiff verbal warning:

Firing a rocket at people’s homes is a clear, coward and cruel act of terrorism. Whether it’s a rocket attack, a shooting, a stabbing or any other form of aggression meant to terrorize civilians, the IDF will not tolerate it. We will continue safeguarding all Israeli civilians whose lives are put in harm’s way.

The IDF holds Hamas accountable and responsible for all attacks emanating from Gaza.

Since the beginning of 2015, 16 rockets were launched at Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip.

The policy of retaliating immediately but lightly for rocket attacks, unless someone is wounded, does little to calm the nerves of Israelis living under constant rocket fire and convince them that the government “will continue safeguarding all Israeli civilians whose lives are put in harm’s way.”
