IAF targets weapons facility in Gaza City

AN Israeli Air Force (IAF) gunship fired missiles into a weapons storage facility in Gaza City late Monday night, the IDF said. Calls were made to residents living in close proximity to the target prior to the air raid, and the Palestinians were warned not to stay in structures used for terror-related purposes. The IDF said that the terrorist organizations continue to operate from within the civilian population of the Gaza Strip, and cynically exploit the homes of uninvolved parties to store their munitions. "The IDF will continue to act with determination against terrorist organizations and terror infrastructure in order to create the conditions for the return of Cpl. Gilad Shalit and to stop terror attacks and the launching of missiles towards Israel," the army said in a press statement.
