Kassam falls south of Ashkelon, but no casualties or damage reported; IDF confirms ‘direct hits’
(SOURCE) Israeli aircraft struck targets in the Gaza Strip late Saturday night, hours after Palestinian terrorists fired a Kassam rocket at the coastal city of Ashkelon.
The rocket fell south of the city. It did not cause any damage and there were no casualties reported.
“The retaliation this evening at Gaza terrorist aggression was precision, and intelligence based,” said IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner. “It is our obligation to seek out those that wish to attack us, eliminate their capabilities and pursue them wherever they hide. Hamas rocket terrorism is an intolerable reality Israelis should not have to accept.”
