Following the latest wave of some fifty strikes, the Israeli Air Force has hit nearly 150 terrorist targets across the Gaza Strip as of Tuesday morning.

An Israeli Defense Force spokesperson said the targets were linked to Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror organizations located in the Gaza Strip, according to reports.

The targets that were hit by the IDF included a tunnel in Darj, four compounds used by Hamas in Gaza City, and a position used to launch rockets from Khan Yunis into southern Israel.

“As of now, the IDF has struck approximately 150 military targets belonging to Hamas and the PIJ [Palestinian Islamic Jihad] terror organizations, including three governmental structures that were used for military purposes. At this time, the IDF’s strikes are still ongoing,” the spokesperson said.

The Israeli Defense Forces reported early Tuesday morning that nearly 400 rockets and mortars had been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel.

Nearly one-hundred projectiles fired from Gaza into Israel were shot down by the Iron Dome missile defense system.
