Nya angrepp från Hamas

Efter några lugna dygn präglades helgen av
nya terroristangrepp från Gaza.
Israelerna i Negevöknen utsattes för dussintals
artilleri- och granatattacker. Samtidigt fortsatte
Hamas sända drakar och ballonger med brand-
bomber in över de israeliska jordbruken för att
orsaka stora bränder före skörden.
Hjältestaden Sderot besköts med sex missiler.
Fyra sköts ned av Iron Dome , en störtade redan
i Gaza och den sista landade i öknen.

In response to the renewed fire on Israel, Israel
Air Force (IAF) fighter jets targeted 10 terror
sites in three military compounds belonging
to the Hamas terror organization in the Gaza Strip.
Among the targets were two Hamas munitions-
manufacturing and storage sites and a military
Later in the night, as the rocket attacks on Israel
continued, IAF fighters bombed five terror targets
at a military compound belonging to Hamas’s
naval force in northern Gaza.

On Sunday, Palestinians from Gaza breached the
border fence and torched construction equipment
within Israeli territory, after which they fled back
to the Strip, the army reported.

The assailants set fire to shipping containers belonging
to civilian contractors working on the security barrier
and damaged Israeli “security infrastructure” close
to the border.

These terror activities included the planting of a grenade
on the border, hurling explosive devices at IDF forces
securing the border, attempts to cross the security fence,
damaging  security infrastructure, and the igniting of some
40 fires in Israeli territory with the use of arson kites and

“The weekend’s events are a continuation of Hamas’ repeated
attempts to turn the area next to the security fence into a violent
zone both above and below ground, conduct terror attacks,
damage security infrastructure and endanger lives of Israeli
civilians and IDF soldiers,” the IDF charged.

“The IDF views these ongoing attempts with great
severity and is determined to fulfill its mission to protect
and ensure the safety of Israeli civilians as needed,” the
IDF stated, noting that “Hamas is solely responsible for
all events that transpire in the Gaza Strip and emanate
from it. If Hamas continues relying on terror instead
of solving the issues that plague Gazan civilians, it will
continue paying a heavy price that will increase
as necessary.”

Saturday night’s violence and Sunday’s infiltration incident
occurred after several days of quiet. The tensions on Israel’s
border with Gaza flared up on Tuesday when terrorists
fired more than 100 projectiles at Israel, the
worst bombardment Israel has experienced since
Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014.
