IDF reveals details of Gaza targets hit in retaliatory strikes

Short video released by military shows targets that included rockets depots, Hamas naval weaponry, explosive drone storage facility, rocket production site and terror training bases.

The IDF published on Wednesday evening details of some of the terror targets struck in the Gaza Strip over the last twenty-four hours in response to a prolonged barrage of mortars and rockets launched into southern Israel in what was the most intense flare-up of hostilities since Operation Protective Edge in 2014.

 

 

More than 65 targets were hit by Israeli aerial reprisal attacks that began Tuesday afternoon and continued into the night. The day’s strikes were launched on what security officials in Gaza called Islamic Jihad militant training sites.

Other targets during Israel’s day retaliatory bombings included military equipment sites and security infrastructures run by Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror organizations.

 

The Israel Air Force, however, refrained from hitting headquarters of the terrorist organizations.

Despite the ceasefire announced by Hamas, the Israel Security Cabinet convened in the evening at the IDF's Kirya headquarters in Tel Aviv to discuss the situation.

According Eyal Zamir Southern Command chief Major-General Eyal Zamir, said the IDF obliterated important strategic targets in the Gaza Strip and porised the rapid strikes as a significant accomplishment.

 

“We attacked very valuable, very important targets and we have waited a long time for the opportunity to hit them,” he said in an interview with Ynet. “I think that at this point in time we have made a very big achievement.”
