Since yesterday, Islamic Jihad terrorists fired more than 350 rockets from Gaza at Israeli civilians. Most of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system.

The rocket barrages were triggered by the targeted elimination of Islamic Jihad commander Baha Abu al-Atta in a predawn Israeli airstrike in Gaza.

“We are continuing to strike Islamic Jihad after having targeted its senior commander in  Gaza. He was responsible for most of the terrorist attacks originating in Gaza in the past year and he had been planning to carry out additional attacks in the days to come”, Netanyahu said at the start of the Cabinet meeting.
