Israel Hits Over 100 Terror Targets
The IDF hit more than 100 targets in Gaza on Tuesday, half of them rocket launching cells

The IDF hit more than 50 targets in Gaza on Tuesday evening, bringing the total number of strikes in the region Tuesday over 100.

Half of the strikes were aimed at terrorist cells that were engaged in firing rockets at Israel. Six known Hamas terrorists and one known Islamic Jihad terrorist were killed over the course of the day.

Twenty terrorists were injured in airstrikes as they attempted to fire Grad rockets.

Twenty-two percent of Tuesday’s strikes hit rocket launchers that were not manned at the time. Another 8 percent of strikes targeted smuggling tunnels.

Four percent targeted weapons stockpiles, 3 percent were aimed at terrorist groups’ infrastructure, and 12 percent hit other targets.

In what appears to have been Tuesday’s most deadly strike, IAF planes hit a weapons convoy in Gaza City. Strikes on two vehicles carrying bombs set off secondary explosions in which six people were killed. According to local media, two of the victims were children.

A Tuesday night strike took out Islamic Jihad terrorist Yunus Shaluf, who was responsible for rocket attacks on the city of Eilat in August.
