Israeli airstrike hits Gaza terrorist squad

The Israeli army said it attacked a terrorist squad in Gaza.

The squad had been involved in recent terrorist activity against Israel, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement issued Tuesday night. One man was killed in Tuesday’s air strike, a 20-year-old member of Islamic Jihad, according to Palestinian reports.

The hit was a joint IDF-Israel Security Agency operation. The IDF in its statement held Hamas responsible for all terrorist activity emanating from Gaza.

Rockets fired from Gaza struck southern Israel on Sunday and Monday.
