Over 450 rockets were fired into Israel over 48 hours this week by the Gaza terror group, Palestinian Islamic Jihad. More than 90 percent of rockets fired were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome system, saving thousands of Israeli lives.

On Thursday Prime Minister Netanyahu visited missile intercept control centre and an Iron Dome battery, where he met some of the men and women serving their country by intercepting the terror rockets.

“I would like to commend the soldiers and commanders for the extraordinary achievement of our defense system, which performed very well, along with the civilians who followed IDF Home Front Command instructions,” said Netanyahu, “As of now, we have succeeded in preventing injuries of any kind.”

He added, “The goals of the operation have now been fully achieved. The goal of the operation was to target the commander of Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip. He was eliminated along with dozens of terrorists and dozens of important Islamic Jihad infrastructure targets.”

“Our enemies received the message. We can reach everyone. We can reach everyone, even in their bed. I hope that this lesson will be learned. I trust our forces to continue to improve and do whatever may be necessary to ensure the security of Israel. Well done and thank you.”
