(JewishNewsOne) – Israel’s IDF this afternoon launched Operation ‘Pillar of Defense’ with a series of targeted airstrikes on militant targets in the Gaza Strip. Israel’s military response comes after the latest escalation in rocket fire from Gaza at southern Israeli civilian communities, which saw over 120 rockets launched in four days. Israeli Prime Minister commented on the air offensive, “We couldn’t abide by the situation where our civilians are attacked regularly and deliberately by terrorists who hide behind their own populace. Today we send a clear message — we can strike back and we are ready to continue.”
