Israel bombs Hamas terror targets in response to rocket attacks and invasion attempts from Gaza
HAPPENING NOW: Israeli fighter jets are carrying out retaliatory strikes bombing Hamas terror target in Gaza after several rocket attacks from Gaza and invasion attempts into Israel.
Code Red rocket sirens sounded in Zikim and Mavki’im during the airstrikes. According to Arab reports, Muslim terrorists fired at Israeli aircraft with heavy weapons from Beit Lahiya, triggering the Iron Dome defense system and sirens.
Rockets were fired by Muslim terrorists in Gaza towards Ashkelon, Mavki’im, Kibbutz Yad Mordechai and Netiv Ha’asara on Wednesday afternoon.
IDF forces arrested two Muslim terrorists who sabotaged the security border fence and invaded Israel from southern Gaza. The terrorists were armed with knives and bolt cutters.
Five rockets were launched from Gaza into the cities of Ashdod and Ashkelon on Tuesday evening, while PM Netanyahu and Avigdor Liberman were in the middle of campaign speeches in Ashdod.
