(April 20, 2022 / JNS) Israeli fighter jets attacked a military target and a terrorist tunnel on Thursday in response to rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.
The IDF said the airstrike hit a tunnel leading to an underground storage area for raw materials used to manufacture rockets. “The attack will lead to significant damage to the rocket-production process in the Gaza Strip,” the Israel Defense Forces said on Twitter.
The IDF also released a video of the attack.
The rocket launched from Gaza on Wednesday night caused damage to a home in Sderot. A resident of the house says the rocket struck near some cooking gas canisters.
“It is a miracle no one was hurt,” he said, reported Ynet.
