Mustafa AY – TDO – 31.12.2017 As a retaliation to Friday rocket fires to Israeli soils, IDF F-16s responded back by hitting Hamas observation post located in Gaza Strip. IDF on its official Twitter account released a message covering “today, as a retaliation to the rockets launched at Sha’ar HaNegev and Sdot Negev regional councils in southern Israel, Israeli Air Forces’ F-16s hit a Hamas observation post in southern Gaza. Hamas was held accountable for the rockets fired at Israel. They should endure the implications of those rockets”. Following Trump administration’s presidential declaration of Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel, IDF has recently intensified the crackdowns over Palestine’s armed arm of Hamas. Accordingly, IDF’s pressures prompted Hamas’s missile’ assails on Israeli soils.
