US bombs play big role in Gaza assault.

 The Jerusalem Post reported on Sunday that the primary weapon used by the Israeli air force in its initial massive wave of attacks on Gaza’s terrorist infrastructure was the GBU-39 bunker-buster bomb.

Israel received its first shipment of 1,000 GBU-39 bombs from the US earlier this month, after winning approval from Congress in September to purchase the high-precision weapon.

Israeli forces used the bombs to great effect on Saturday and Sunday as they targeted underground Hamas facilities across the Gaza Strip.

The GBU-39 was developed by the US military as a small-diameter, low-cost weapon that would result in low collateral damage during pinpoint strikes.
