In addition to Amud Anan (Pillar of Defense), its operation in defense of the Jewish state in response to a barrage of rockets from Gaza, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is also taking the operation to Twitter.

“The IDF has begun a widespread campaign on terror sites & operatives in the Gaza Strip, chief among them Hamas & Islamic Jihad targets,” said the IDF spokesperson’s unit, according to Globes.

The IDF tweets regularly about the launch and interception of rockets, and it also tweeted the video showing the assassination of Hamas military commander Ahmed Jabari.

In addition to Twitter, the IDF is posting frequently on Facebook. One post, “Hamas rocket threat,” shows a map of rocket ranges and Israeli cities, and the statement, “Tonight, more than one million Israelis are going to sleep in bomb shelters. This operation will bring a better tomorrow. Share if you believe Israel has the right to defend itself.” Another post states “Palestinian terrorists have fired more than 12,000 rockets against Israel in the last 12 years. Share if you believe Israel has the right to defend itself.”
