The Israel Defense Forces revealed on Tuesday that Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) was involved in a failed attempt to launch a drone towards the Tamar gas rig during the recent conflict between the Gaza-based terror organization and Israel.

Israel’s army has increased its efforts to safeguard the platform, some 14 miles off the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, reported i24News. This comes after the PIJ’s unsuccessful attempt to launch an unmanned aircraft from Gaza.

“Operation Breaking Dawn,” which took place between Aug. 5-7, is being called one of Israel’s most successful Gaza operations in recent years.

Every story is a world

In an era of social media and bloggers, false news spreads like a wildfire, igniting bouts of anti-Semitism, hate crimes and even wars.

Accurate and thoughtful journalism is needed now more than ever.

Throughout the year, we have worked hard to present stories and analyses about Israel and the Jewish world when they are needed most. Our reporters strive to tell the truth when others fail to do so.

Our ability to continue creating the content you know and read depends on you.

This Rosh Hashanah, we appreciate your support.
