Israel struck three targets in Gaza, after rocketfire from the Strip.
The Israeli Air Force hit two sites in southern Gaza and one in central Gaza Monday, targeting what the IDF called “terror activity sites.” The military said the mission was “in response to the latest severe aggression emanating from Gaza.”
Monday, Gazan terrorists fired seven rockets at the Jewish state, with one causing damage to a road and several Sderot shops.
Likewise, Sunday evening, a bomb went off at the Gaza border fence during an IDF patrol, and an anti-tank missile was launched from Gaza at an IDF patrol early Monday morning.
“On our holiday today, our enemies fired missiles at our communities and our policy is clear – to respond quickly and strongly. We strike at whoever comes to attack us,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday night.
The IDF estimates that 100 rockets out of the Strip have hit Israel since the beginning of the year.
