IDF Targeting 70 Underground Launching Sites in Gaza • IDF Blog | The Official Blog of the Israel Defense Forces

During the past hour, during a rapid and coordinated military strike, the IDF targeted approximately 70 underground medium range (up to 40 km) rocket launching sites in the Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.

The sites that have been targeted were positively identified by precise intelligence collected over the course of months.

The aim of targeting these sites is to significantly impair the rocket launching capability of terror organizations in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas has turned the Gaza Strip into a frontal base for Iran, terrorizing the residents of the State of Israel and forcing them to live under unbearable circumstances.

The IDF will continue to target sites that are used to carry out terror attacks against Israeli citizens.
