Israeli fighter jets bomb two Hamas attack tunnels along the central Gaza coast, as well as a tunnel opening in the northern Strip and a military facility east of the southern city of Rafah, in retaliation for the more than 180 rockets and mortar shells fired at southern Israel throughout the morning, the army says.
These latest targets join the approximately 150 others that have been hit in response to repeated attacks by the Gaza-ruling Hamas and other terrorist groups in the Palestinian enclave.
“The wide-reaching attacks that the IDF has conducted caused damage and destruction to some 150 military and strategic targets belonging to the Hamas terror organization, representing a significant blow to Hamas,” the army says in a statement.
The military warns the terror group that it will “bear the consequences for its terrorist activities against the citizens of Israel.”
