IDF strikes 3 targets in Gaza

Army says strike in response to rocket that damaged packing-house Wednesday

Israel Air Force Jets struck three terror targets in the Gaza Strip Wednesday night. The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said the targets hit include a weapons factory in the northern Strip and a terror tunnel in southern Gaza.


An IDF statement said the tunnel was dug one kilometer away from the border fence and was used for the infiltration of terrorist into Israel in order to carry out attacks against civilians and soldiers.


The strike came in response to the Qassam rocket that was fired at Sdot Negev Regional Council in the early hours of Wednesday morning, which hit a packing-house in one of the council's communities.


No one was injured in the attack, but the structure was badly damaged.


Head of the community's emergency squad, Avi Aptelboim, said that "a Color Red siren was sounded at around 4 am, followed by a rocket which landed inside the community, near the packing-house. The packing-house sustained heavy damage and it won't be operated today. There were no injuries, thank God."


Three days ago the IDF launched a strike in the Gaza Strip in response to a mortar shell that was fired at the western Negev. One terrorist was killed and three others were injured in the strike.
