IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz summoned a number of top IDF commanders Friday to discuss the spike in rocket fire from the Gaza Strip towards Israel.

Gantz organized the meeting to discuss an IDF response to the ongoing attacks.

Lt.-Col. Yair Naveh, OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Tal Russo, senior Israeli Air Force and Israel Navy officers were among the attending officers attending the meeting.

According to Army Radio, defense officials believe that Hamas and Islamic Jihad are not behind the attacks from Gaza. Instead, smaller terrorist groups are likely firing rockets at southern communities in Israel.
