Jerusalem once again retaliates with multiple airstrikes after Gaza rocket lands in Israel


Even though a single rocket from Gaza struck the Eshkol Regional Council with no damage or injuries reported, Israel will no longer allow attacks go without retribution.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) attacked several terror sites in the Gaza Strip late Monday night in response to a rocket fired earlier by Palestinian terrorists that struck an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council.

No injuries or damage was reported as a result of the rocket fire.

Earlier in the day the bodies of the three kidnapped Israeli teens who were kidnapped over two weeks ago were discovered by security forces just north of Hebron.

The two prime suspects in the kidnapping, Amar Abu-Eisha, 33, and Marwan Kawasmeh, 29, haven’t yet been captured and IDF officials vowed Monday that operations against Hamas would continue.

International leaders voiced solidarity with Israel in wake of the murders but also voiced concern that the security situation could rapidly deteriorate and urged both Israelis and Palestinians to act with restraint.
