The IDF continued to strike dozens of terrorist infrastructures in Gaza on Tuesday evening, as part of Operation Pillar of Defense, the IDF Spokesman said in a statement.
Among the targets hit on Tuesday were tunnels that are used to smuggle weapons, as well as tunnels through which fuel is transferred to terrorists (video below).
IAF aircraft also hit a Gaza bank used by Hamas, a site promoting terrorist activity in southern Gaza, Hamas's headquarters in northern Gaza, a military apartment and a meeting place for senior terrorist operatives.
Also targeted were four weapons storage sites and two weapons manufacturing sites.
In addition, IAF aircraft hit terrorist squads who were trying to fire anti-tank missiles, as well as other terrorists throughout Gaza. Navy fighters as well as IAF aircraft attacked several rocket launching points and seven hidden launchers.
Earlier it was reported that half of Tuesday’s strikes were aimed at terrorist cells that were engaged in firing rockets at Israel. Six known Hamas terrorists and one known Islamic Jihad terrorist were killed over the course of the day.
Twenty terrorists were injured in airstrikes as they attempted to fire Grad missiles.
In one of Tuesday’s most deadly strikes, IAF planes hit a weapons convoy in Gaza City. Strikes on two vehicles carrying bombs set off secondary explosions in which six people were killed. According to local media, two of the victims were children.
A Tuesday night strike took out Islamic Jihad terrorist Yunus Shaluf, who was responsible for rocket attacks on the city of Eilat in August.
