Israeli Air Force aircraft struck a weapons manufacturing site in Gaza, along with two tunnels used by terrorists in northern Gaza, and a third tunnel also used by terrorist groups, in Southern Gaza.

According to an IDF statement, direct hits were confirmed.  The air force said the strike was in response to mortar attacks that originated from Gaza over the weekend, affirming it’s long standing policy that Hamas is responsible for attacks originating from the Gaza strip.

“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip,” the IDF said in  their statement.
