The IDF’s international spokesperson provides an update on the situation involving the Islamic Jihad in Gaza.

Lt. Col. Richard Hecht, the IDF’s international spokesperson, explains that the IDF chose to retaliate with a precision strike on Islamic Jihad anti-tank cells that were preparing for another attack after numerous failed anti-tank rocket attacks against Israeli civilians.

Operation Breaking Dawn was the result of this chain of events.

The lives of civilians in Israel and Gaza are in peril as a result of the Islamic Jihad’s constant rocket fire at Israel. The IDF will not remain silent in this situation.
