Israel bombs 320 Islamic Jihad, Hamas terror targets in response to rocket fire from Gaza
The Israeli Air Force continues to bomb Islamic Jihad and Hamas terror targets in Gaza in response to more than 700 rockets fired from Gaza at Israeli civilians since Saturday morning.
Four Israelis have been murdered and hundreds have been injured in non-stop barrages of rockets into Israeli civilians.
Hamas’ public security headquarters, rockets launchers, terror tunnels, weapons manufacturing factories, an Islamic Jihad compound and command center located inside a mosque, Hamas weapons depots, observation control rooms, and terror tunnels were among the targets bombed by the IDF in response to the massive rocket attacks.
According to the Hamas-ruled health ministry in Gaza, 23 Muslim terrorists were confirmed dead as a result of retaliatory Israeli airstrikes.
A pregnant mother and her 14-month-old baby were killed in Gaza due to a rocket fired from Gaza that fell short and missed its target of Israeli civilians. As usual, anti-Israel propagandists and Israel-haters try to use this Jihad-induced tragedy to smear Israel.
The Gaza Health Ministry said 146 wounded people have been taken to hospitals.
The Iranian backed-Islamic Jihad has said seven of the eliminated were members of the terror group.
Muslim terrorist Hamad Ahmad Khudari, a senior member of the Hamas armed wing Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, whose sole mission is to murder Israelis, has been eliminated as the result of an IDF targeted elimination in central Gaza.
Arabs report that the 34-year-old Muslim terrorist was eliminated by an Israeli strike on his car in central Gaza.
In a dramatic escalation, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit confirmed the targeted assassination, adding that Ahmad Khudari was responsible for the transfer of funds from Iran to the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups in Gaza.
This is the first targeted assassination since 2014.
In addition, the IDF says it thwarted a Hamas cyber attack:
“We thwarted an attempted Hamas cyber offensive against Israeli targets. Following our successful cyber defensive operation, we targeted a building where the Hamas cyber operatives work. HamasCyberHQ.exe has been removed”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.
The security cabinet convened earlier Sunday and has instructed the military to expand its attacks and to bolster reinforcements near Gaza, as consultations are ongoing.
