DAILY UPDATE FROM THE DAVID PROJECT

Summary of Overnight Activity (January 4-5)

The IDF operation continued overnight against the Hamas terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip in order to reduce the rocket fire on the south of Israel.  The strikes were carefully considered in order to avoid civilian casualties.

Some of the targets included:

· A rocket launcher
· A mosque used for storing a large amount of weaponry
· An underground bunker in the area of Gaza City. (The attack caused secondary explosions indicating there were explosives inside.)

Summary of Ongoing Humanitarian aide (January 5)

· Kerem Shalom cargo crossing has been opened to allow for 80 truckloads of medical supplies, medication, and food commodities to cross into Gaza.
· The fuel depot at Nahal Oz is scheduled to convey some 200,000 liters of fuel for the power station and other humanitarian needs.
