Tensions Remain High in Israel: Major Drone Attack Thwarted and Rockets Fired into the South

Israel thwarted a large scale attack on Sunday by striking Iranian Quds Force operatives and Shiite Militia targets in Syria.

“In a major operational effort, we have thwarted an attack against Israel by the Iranian Quds Force & Shi’ite militias. I reiterate: Iran has no immunity anywhere. Our forces operate in every sector against the Iranian aggression,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Twitter. “I have directed that our forces be prepared for any scenario. We will continue to take determined and responsible action against Iran and its proxies for the security of Israel.”

Early Monday morning, the Israeli Air Force launched a series of airstrikes on targets in the northern Gaza Strip after Palestinian terrorists fired three rockets at southern Israel, sending thousands of residents rushing to bomb shelters. A music concert in Sderot was interrupted by the alert sirens forcing hundreds to flee to safety.

The Israel Defense Forces said it had hit targets on “a military base belonging to the Hamas terror group in northern Gaza, including the office of a Hamas battalion commander.”
