Air Force Strafes Hamas Position in Southern Gaza

The Israeli Air Force strafed a Hamas position in southern Gaza in the pre-dawn hours Thursday in retaliation to mortar shelling on western Negev communities Wednesday and previous missile strikes.

Terrorists in Gaza have attacked Israel more than 40 times with mortars and rockets since Israel declared a unilateral ceasefire following the end of Operation Cast Lead against the Hamas terrorist infrastructure.
