Palestinian Rockets Target Israel ahead of Ceasefire

(Jerusalem Post) Anna Ahronheim - Just hours before the ceasefire on Sunday, at least 50 rockets were fired toward central and southern Israel, including Tel Aviv and Ben-Gurion Airport. Shortly before the ceasefire took effect, barrages of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israeli communities near the border, as the IDF carried out airstrikes against targets in Gaza planned ahead of time for the end of the operation. Since the beginning of the operation, the IDF has targeted 140 Islamic Jihad figures, including senior and anti-tank missile operatives. The military also destroyed 11 rocket launch sites, six military sites and eight terror cells that were on their way to or coming back from launching rockets.
