During the night, IDF warplanes attacked a military compound belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization in Dir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip, as well as a number of other military targets across the coastal enclave.
In total, dozens of targets were hit during the past 24 hours in response to the terrorist organization's rocket fire on Israeli civilians.
Many Israelis complained that Hamas had a 12-hour window before the Israel Air Force attack and that all terrorist military operatives had time to take cover underground and remained untouched. Generally, Israel prefers pinpoint assassinations of high-ranking Hamas terrorists. But with a large buildup of IDF forces now amassing at the Gaza border, Hamas may soon have nowhere to hide.
