Defining Trends

The Gaza Strip

Government Policy on allowing goods into the Gaza Strip continues; crossings are now able to absorb over 300 trucks a day.

However Hamas continues to act aggressively against Israel. In addition to Hamas’ own terrorist activities, the organization allows various terrorist groups to use the territory under its control to plan and carry out attacks and rocket launches.

In the month of August, an intensive barrage of rocket and mortar fire emanating from the Gaza Strip was directed at Israel. In the period of this report rockets continue to be fired albeit at a lower intensity; from 1-15 September, five rockets, including one Grad rocket, and one mortar were launched from the Gaza Strip towards civilian areas in Israel. Meanwhile, Hamas has sustained its efforts to acquire more weaponry through smuggling into the Gaza strip.

The IAF acted in response to the rocket and mortar fire with pinpoint attacks targeting a Hamas ammunitions warehouse and a rocket launching site.
