Israeli airstrike hits Gaza terrorist squad
The Israeli army said it attacked a terrorist squad in Gaza.
The squad had been involved in recent terrorist activity against Israel, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement issued Tuesday night. One man was killed in Tuesday’s air strike, a 20-year-old member of Islamic Jihad, according to Palestinian reports.
The hit was a joint IDF-Israel Security Agency operation. The IDF in its statement held Hamas responsible for all terrorist activity emanating from Gaza.
Rockets fired from Gaza struck southern Israel on Sunday and Monday.
