IAF aircraft bombed a Hamas military training facility in central Gaza early Monday. The attack came in retaliation to a rocket attack late Sunday night.

Red Alert air raid sirens woke sleeping children and families in communities in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, triggered by the rocket fire from Gaza.

In January alone, three rockets have been launched from Gaza and have hit Israeli territory. IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said, “Tonight, families in southern Israel were once again forced to find shelter, fleeing radical Islamic terrorism emanating from the Gaza Strip.

“Hamas is responsible and is accountable for all attacks from the Gaza Strip. The IDF will continue to operate and defend against those that undermine Israeli sovereignty while jeopardizing the safety and wellbeing of civilians.”

Hamas is still a very active Muslim extremest group and an Arab import to the Palestinian territory. They are no better than ISIS. Why do we do nothing?
