Israel conducted an air strike on another Hamas observation post Sunday night following a new policy approved by the IDF Southern Command. This followed another nightly Palestinian mob assault on Israel forces with a hail of explosive devices and hand grenades. It was decided to hit back at Hamas even in the absence of Israel casualties as in the past.
In another statement, the IDF announced there would be no tolerance for the resurgence of the explosive balloon barrages from Gaza which plagued Israeli border locations last summer. Israel would henceforth react by targeting the heads of the Hamas balloon offensive, “and we know who they are,” said the statement.
