The IDF struck some 150 medium-range rocket launching pads in the Gaza Strip overnight Thursday as well as a number of weapons depots belonging to terror organizations in the coastal territory, as Operation Pillar of Defense entered its third day.

After more than 300 rockets were fired into Israel since Operation Pillar of Defense began with the IDF's targeted killing of Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari on Wednesday, only a small number of rockets landed in Israel overnight Thursday, mainly in open areas.

Early on Friday morning rockets rockets hit in residential areas in the Ashdod and Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council areas, causing some damage to property and leaving several people suffering shock.

The IDF stated Friday morning that it has struck more than 450 terror targets in Gaza since the operation to root out terror infrastructure in the coastal territory was initiated.
