IAF targets more weapons production sites, tunnel in fresh Gaza airstrikes

The military say Israeli Air Force jets hit additional targets in the Gaza Strip amid ongoing airstrikes in the Palestinian enclave.

Fighter jets took out a shaft for an underground weapons production site, three other sites for weapons manufacturing and a terrorist tunnel, belonging to terror organization Hamas, the military says.

These attacks disrupt Hamas’s ability to “strengthen and arm itself,” the military says, adding that the terror group “bears responsibility” for recent events and “is the one that will pay the price for the security violations against the State of Israel.”

Israel has been striking Gaza overnight and launched a rare strike in Lebanon less than two hours ago, following a day of rocket barrages from the Palestinian enclave and from Lebanon territory on Thursday.

Nearly three dozen rockets were launched at Israel from Lebanon on Thursday afternoon, most of them intercepted by the Iron Dome system.
