Rockets Hit Israel from Gaza on Friday, IDF Responds With Tank Fire
In two separate incidents on Friday, rockets fired from Gaza hit Israel in Ashkelon and a rocket propelled grenade was fired at IDF soldiers near the Gaza border.
The grenade damaged the security fence and initiated a response from the IDF, which used tank fire to deter other attacks.
Rockets continue to land inside Israel, from Gaza, which is governed by Hamas.
“The IDF views such actions of attempting to harm the citizens and communities of Israel as severe. The Hamas terror organization which uses terror against Israel, and dangers the civilians of the Gaza Strip, will be held accountable for the consequences of any future actions carried out by the IDF, in order to remove the terror threat and restore relative calm to the area,” said the IDF in a statement on Friday.
