Israel strikes Gaza targets


Israeli airstrikes hit several Gaza targets in retaliation for a Palestinian attack that damaged a western Negev factory.

Air Force jets struck what was identified as a weapons manufacturing facility in the northern Gaza Strip, as well as a “terrorist tunnel” and a “terrorist activity site” in southern Gaza, according to a statement issued by the Israel Defense Forces Wednesday night following the attack. The tunnel, according to the statement, was dug about one mile away from the security fence “and is intended for infiltrating into Israel and perpetrating terrorist attacks against IDF soldiers and Israeli civilians.” 

The attack was in response to a Kassam rocket fired early Wednesday morning from Gaza that caused serious damage to a packing plant in the western Negev and damaged equipment and other buildings in the area.

More than 90 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at Israeli territory since the beginning of 2010, according to the IDF.
