Less than a day into a ceasefire, sirens blared from Gaza as rockets were sent into Israel.
A terrorist representative claimed the launch was accidental:
“The rocket fired at Israel was the result of a technical malfunction. We are still committed to the ceasefire.”
Despite the claim, the IDF attacked back. So far the terrorist factions in Gaza have restrained from responding.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke about the recent operation earlier on Sunday.
“Last night, we successfully concluded five days of fighting against the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization. Before starting the operation, the directive I gave, together with the Defense Minister, to the IDF and ISA amounted to two words: ‘Initiative’ and ‘surprise’.”
“I congratulated the IDF Chief-of-Staff and the Director of the ISA yesterday also with two words: ‘Well done.’ Indeed, the operation was perfect. With complete surprise and continuous initiative, we targeted the entire Islamic Jihad leadership in Gaza. We destroyed 17 Jihad command centers. We eliminated dozens of terrorists. We hit rocket and missile arsenals, took out anti-tank units, etc.”
