An IDF tank destroyed a position of the Hamas terror organization in the southern Gaza Strip. The attack was in response to shooting on an IDF force working near the security fence in the south of the Gaza strip. An IDF statement said "The IDF will continue to respond with determination at all times to maintain the State of Israel's security".
This was the third attack by the IDF on Hamas positions Monday. Earlier, the Israeli Air Force struck three Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip Monday afternoon, in retaliation for rocket fire from the Strip earlier today. On Monday morning the IDF opened fire on a Hamas position in the northern Gaza Strip in retaliation for an attack by the terror group.
