This past week rocket fire from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory continued to escalate. The IDF responded with air strikes, its targets including a tunnel which operatives of the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas' military-terrorist wing, planned to use for a terrorist attack in Israeli territory. On July 2, 2014, Muhammad Abu Khdeir, a 16 year-old Palestinian boy from the Shuafat neighborhood north of Jerusalem, was abducted and brutally murdered.

The bodies of the three youths who were abducted and murdered were found in the region of Halhul (northwest of Hebron) after 18 days of intensive searching. They were apparently murdered shortly after their abduction and their bodies were hidden, perhaps with the intention of using them as bargaining chips at a later date. During the operation the terrorist organizations operating in the Gaza Strip escalated their rocket fire into the western Negev (52 rocket hits have been identified since the beginning of the operation, not including the mortar shells and rockets that fell by mistake inside the Gaza Strip).
