For Immediate Release
In Response to Second Incident of Rocket Fire this Weekend, IAF Targets
Hamas Terror Infrastructure in Gaza Strip
Overnight, the Israel Air Force struck a Hamas-linked terror tunnel and a
weapons-smuggling tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip.
The attack is in response to the Qassam rocket that was fired at Israel on
Saturday evening, August 1st 2010, which hit the Sha'ar HaNegev Regional
Council, causing heavy property damage. This was the second incident of
rocket fire in 36 hours.
Approximately 110 rockets and mortars have been fired at Israeli territory
since the beginning of 2010, and over 400 rockets were fired from the Gaza
Strip into Israel since the end of Operation Cast Lead.
The IDF remains committed to protecting the citizens of Israel and will
continue to act against terror. The IDF holds Hamas solely responsible for
terror emanating from the Gaza Strip.
