IDF Spokesperson Update: A short while ago, on September 29th 2006, the IDF carried out an aerial attack, targeting a building used for the manufacturing and storage of weaponry the southern Gaza Strip.
Prior to the attack on this terror facility in order to ensure the safety of civilians in the area, the IDF warned the population not to stay in structures that are used by terrorist organizations for storing weaponry.
Terrorist organizations operate from within civilian population, while cynically exploiting uninvolved civilians and using them as human shields, exploiting their homes to store weaponry and launching rockets at Israeli towns from populated areas.
The IDF will continue to act with determination against terrorist organizations and terror infrastructure in order to create the conditions for the return of Cpl. Gilad Shalit and to stop terror attacks and the launching of missiles towards Israel.
