Israeli planes strike Gaza in response to rocket attacks

Thursday, October 22, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff  

Israeli warplanes attacked terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip late Wednesday night in response to recent rocket attacks carried out against southern Israel.

The Israeli strikes focused on an arms manufacturing plant and arms smuggling tunnels running under the Gaza-Egypt border.

The brief aerial assault came just hours after Palestinian terrorists operating out of Gaza fired a rocket into southern Israel. The rocket landed near an agricultural area, and did not cause any damage or injuries.

Gaza-based terrorists have fired 55 rockets and mortar shells into southern Israel over the past three months.
