IDF Destroys Largest Rocket Production Site in Gaza

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have reportedly destroyed the largest rocket manufacturing site utilized by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist organization in the Gaza Strip.

Forces from the Israeli Commando Brigade, including the 401st Brigade and the Yahalom Unit, raided the site located in the Tel al-Sultan area, officials reported.

“During the operation, Commandos and Yahalom special operations forces operated simultaneously above and below ground to eliminate terrorists with drones and precise missiles,” the IDF said in a statement.

The IDF said that “hundreds” of rockets had been made at the site over the last few years.

“The destruction of the outpost and the underground production site damages the Islamic Jihad’s ability to produce and fire rockets at Israeli civilians and communities,” the IDF statement added.
