More innocent people in Gaza were killed by failed Islamic Jihad rockets than by Israeli airstrikes during Operation Breaking Dawn, according to a briefing by the commander of the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit Brig.-Gen. Ran Kochav.

Operation Breaking Dawn lasted for 66 hours in which the IDF assassinated several high-ranking Islamic Jihad operatives and destroyed much of the terror organization’s military capabilities. For its final action of the operation on Sunday night, the IDF destroyed three warehouses that were used to store a variety of weapons.

Throughout the operation, the Islamic Jihad fired an approximate total of 1,100 rockets, 200 of which landed within Gaza. Of the 990 rockets that made it into Israel, 380 were intercepted by the Iron Dome at a 95% success rate. The other 610 landed in the sea and open spaces.

Apart from a few people who were lightly injured from debris on Saturday, no Israeli casualties were reported. The Palestinians, however, reported a total of 35 deaths out of which 26 were innocent bystanders. Of the 26, 11 were killed in Israeli airstrikes, and 15 were killed by Islamic Jihad rockets that failed to clear Gaza.
