Israel Launches Strike in Gaza Strip After Hamas Rocket Attack

Early Monday morning, the Gaza Strip was lit up again.

Just hours after the Iron Dome took down two Hamas rockets that had been launched at Israel, a retaliatory strike was conducted.

Israeli fighter jets launched the attack early Monday morning.

The Attack

According to current reports, three rockets were sent by Hamas late Sunday.

Two of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system.

However, one rocket did get through, with five minor injuries being reported.

IDF chief of staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi stated that they would “protect the Gaza border and will not accept any violation of [Israel’s] sovereignty of any kind.”

He then added, “We are vigorously attacking for every violation and we will continue to do so, and if they escalate, Hamas and the Gaza Strip will pay a heavy price.”

There have been no injuries reported from Palestine regarding the counterstrike by Israel as of this report.

Ironically, on Sunday, before the initial strike took place, Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid called for a new “direction” to find peace.

He stated, “The policy Israel has pursued up until now hasn’t substantially changed the situation. We need to change direction.”

I guess he has his answer.
