IAF aircraft struck a terror tunnel in northern Gaza on Tuesday
night, according to a statement by the IDF Spokesman.
The statement said that direct hits were identified and that all
aircraft safely returned to their bases.
The attack came in response to recent rocket fire from Gaza at
Israeli territory. Earlier on Tuesday, Gaza-based terrorists fired a
Qassam rocket at southern Israel. The rocket exploded in an open area
in the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council.
There were no reports of physical injuries or damages.
On Monday, terrorists in Gaza launched a rocket at the town of
Sderot. The rocket landed in an area about a kilometer away from
Israel´s security fence along the Gaza border. The explosion occurred
in an open area, and no property damage was reported by the
authorities. No one was physically injured.
Last week, as Israelis celebrated the Jewish State’s 64th
Independence Day, terrorists from Gaza fired a rocket at the Ashkelon
Coast Regional Council. In this attack as well, the rocket exploded
in an open area. No physical injuries or damages were reported.
“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli citizens and
IDF soldiers and will continue to act against anyone who uses terror
against Israel,” said the IDF statement, adding that “the Hamas
terror organization is responsible” for the attacks on the south.
In March, terror gangs in Gaza fired over 200 rockets into Israel
over a period of four days following the targeted killing of Popular
Resistance Committee leader Zuhir Musa Ahmed Qaisi and his deputy,
Mahmoud Ahmed Mahmoud Hanani.
The quiet in the south has mostly been maintained since Egypt
brokered a ceasefire between the sides. However, a ‘ceasefire’ for
the terrorist groups mean that they do not fire barrages of rockets,
but periodically send a reminder to Israelis that they have the
ability to disrupt their lives. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 05/02/12)
