Iron Dome Intercepts Rockets Fired From Gaza

Iron Dome Intercepts Rockets Fired From Gaza

In late October, the IDF destroyed a cross-border Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) attack tunnel, killing 12 including two senior Islamic Jihad commanders and two Hamas members.

Palestinians say the two killed were members of the Al-Quds Brigade, the military wing of Islamic Jihad.

The incident comes amid ongoing protests in the occupied West Bank, occupied East Jerusalem and besieged Gaza over US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "In response to the rocket, an IDF tank and the IAF targeted Hamas terror posts in the southern Gaza Strip", the IDF Spokesperson's Unit wrote on its official Twitter page. The Israeli military had no immediate comment.

At least two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip, with the second intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defence system, the army said on Monday.

The IDF responded to the attack with tank and aircraft fire towards Hamas targets in the south of the Gaza Strip.

However, the Israeli army on Tuesday denied it carried out the air strike, according to reports. Once, because it is responsible for the Gaza Strip, and any act of violence that emanates from the Gaza Strip is under Hamas responsibility.

The IDF said the Iron Dome successfully intercepted the rocket.

Residents also report hearing IDF artillery shelling the Beit Hanoun area of Gaza in response.

On Sunday, Israel said it had destroyed a tunnel dug by Hamas into Israeli territory, apparently for use in an attack.

Four Gazans, including two Hamas militants, have died since the announcement last Wednesday.
