The IDF has struck more than 100 terror targets on Monday, officials announced Monday afternoon, totaling 1,535 targets eliminated since Operation Protective Edge began seven days ago. 

Targets tackled Monday include 33 rocket launchers, eight missile production sites, four civilian homes used as command posts, and seven terror tunnels. 

The Israeli Navy also attacked several medium-range rocket launching sites.

"The IDF is determined and will continue to attack terrorist targets systematically to  cause significant damage to the Hamas terrorist organization, and will work for the destruction of terrorist networks that operate to harm Israeli citizens," the IDF Spokesperson's Office said in a statement Monday.

The Iron Dome intercepted two rockets over Tel Aviv on Monday evening; no injuries or damage were reported. 

Hamas has fired over 1,000 rockets on Israel over the past week, the IDF stated Monday morning. Of those, 201 were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system; 754 have hit Israeli soil.
