IDF Official: 'Significant' Progress in Operation


The IDF has successfully hit at least 7 Hamas targets since Friday morning, a senior official stated to IDF Radio Friday evening, after over 75 rockets have been fired on Israeli soil since the early morning hours. 

The official stressed that Operation Protective Edge has shown some success so far, with over 2,000 rockets estimated to have been destroyed in IAF airstrikes this week.

"Presumably the day after [the operation ends], Hamas will ask themselves why they should have this conflict [at all]," the official added.
