IAF war planes early Tuesday morning bombed a Hamas weapons plant in northern Gaza, as well as two tunnels in the southern part of the Strip that were used for smuggling arms. The planes successfully hit their targets, and all the aircraft involved returned successfully to their bases, the IDF Spokesperson said on Tuesday morning. According to the IDF, the strikes were in response to Hamas's launching of rockets into Israel on Sunday. In a statement, the IDF reiterated that it would not tolerate terrorist organizations launching strikes into Israel and would continue to act decisively against any attempt to disturb the peace of Israel's southern citizens.
