On Sunday morning, IDF spokesman Brigadier-General Ran Kochav issued a statement regarding rocket fire aimed at Israel over the weekend. "We regard the rocket fire directed at Ashkelon and the Gaza perimeter area with the utmost gravity," Kochav said in an interview with Radio 103FM. "Following the fire, we responded with an extremely significant attack on Shabbat itself, striking an underground site that was being used for the manufacture of rockets. From time to time, we learn of various sites used by Hamas for training or assembling weapons, and we eliminate their capabilities in such sites, striking when the opportunity presents itself -- and this was such an opportunity," Kochav added.
