The IAF bombed a number of targets in southern Gaza early on Monday in response to a Palestinian rocket attack Sunday on the South.
The IDF Spokesman’s Office said the targets had been struck accurately, and confirmed that the air strikes were a response to the rocket.
“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli citizens or
soldiers, and will continue to act with determination against any
element seeking to unleash terror against the State of Israel,” the
Spokesman’s Office added.
After being elected in 2009, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared
that Israel would respond to every rocket attack targeting southern
towns and villages.
Sunday’s projectile struck the Ashkelon Coast regional council, south
of Ashkelon, ending over a month of calm on the southern border. No
casualties or damage were reported from the attack.
