The IDF released Saturday a video showing the strike on three Islamic Jihad terrorists preparing to fire rockets at Israel.
All three terrorists were killed in the Friday night attack.
"The message is clear. We will not allow the firing of rockets at Israel, and all means are kosher to that end," a military official said of the strike, which featured IDF cooperation with the Shin Bet security service.
The video shows three figures getting out of their vehicle and preparing to fire rockets. It also shows that the rocket prepared for launch exploded in midair.
The strike was the first one of its kind since the end of Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip in January 2009.
