IAF Targets Launch Site of Grad Rocket

IAF aircraft targeted on Thursday evening the launch site where the squad which had earlier fired a Grad rocket at the Hevel Lakhish Regional Council was located. Military sources reported that the squad members were seen fleeing the scene.

In a statement, the IDF Spokesperson said: “The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers, and will respond with determination to any attempt to use terror against the State of Israel. The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.”
