MADRID, Dec. 4 (.) –
The Israeli Army has reported several attacks at dawn this Sunday by combat planes in response to the first rocket launched from the Gaza Strip in a month, which have targeted a workshop for the production of anti-aircraft missiles and a tunnel associated with Hamas.
“Tonight’s attack follows the trend of damaging Hamas’s capacity to strengthen the Gaza Strip,” the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a message on its Twitter account.
“In response to the firing of rockets into Israel, warplanes tonight attacked a workshop for the production of anti-aircraft missiles of the terrorist organization Hamas. The workshop serves as the central site for the production of most of the organization’s rockets in the Gaza Strip. In addition, a tunnel of the Hamas terrorist organization in the south of the Gaza Strip was attacked,” they said.
The Israeli authorities denounced this Saturday the impact of a rocket launched from the Gaza Strip and which caused no casualties or material damage, after hitting an unpopulated area in southern Israel.
Islamic Jihad had recently threatened a response to the deaths of several of its supporters in the West Bank.
