The Israel Defense Forces said Thursday, its war jets attacked over 140 targets overnight situated @ the world’s largest open air prison camp in Palestinian enclave of Gaza.
The IDF air strikes allegedly came in retaliation for a barrage of 150 rockets fired into Israel on Wednesday evening, of which only 25 were shot down by the Iron Dome defense system.
The Israeli military responded by targeting a cement factory used by Gazans to build escape tunnels, including a maritime tunnel shaft, and several other sites in the compounds of the Gaza 1.8 million people concentration camp,” the IDF tweeted.
IDF also reported that an Israeli fighter jet had fired towards what it called a “rocket defense launching squad” in Gaza.
Previously, Israel accused militants in the Hamas-defended enclave of launching around 70 rockets into its territory. Most of them hit open areas.
The Israeli military said it had responded by launching an air strike at a vehicle allegedly used by another “rocket launching squad” in Gaza to fire a rocket at Israel.
The Israeli Defense Forces suffered their first casualties since the 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict last week, with observers fearing that recent skirmishes are a powder keg waiting explode into a full-scale war.
