The IDF Spokesperson's Unit released footage of an IDF airstrike on Gaza on Tuesday, showing the destruction of the homes of two senior Hamas terrorists. 

Earlier Tuesday, the IDF announced certain hits on the homes and terror sites of four Hamas leaders.

Those four included Iyad Sahikh, a senior Hamas official in Gaza city directly responsible for rocket fire on Israel; Abdullah Khashash, a "repeat offender" in facilitating rocket fire against Israel living in Rafah; Samer Abu Daka, a senior Hamas official in Khan Younis, active in facilitating terror against Israel [in general]; and Hassan Abdallah, a Hamas official in Khan Younis responsible for the current round of rocket fire on Israel. 

The video shows the targeting of Sahkih's and Abdallah's homes during the early stages of Operation Protective Edge, which aims to stop the barrage of rocket fire from Gaza.

As of Tuesday morning, over 170 rockets had been fired from the Hamas enclave of Gaza in a 24 hour period.
