Israel Warplanes Strike Gaza; No Injuries


Israeli warplanes struck several targets in the southern and central Gaza Strip early Saturday.

No injuries were reported.

A Ma’an correspondent in the southern Gaza Strip said several missiles hit an Islamic Jihad military base in Khan Younis.


Warplanes also fired at an open area in the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza.

Gaza medical official Adham Abu Salmeya said there were no reports of injury.

The Israeli military said its aircraft “targeted a number of terror hubs … in response to recent rocket fire into Israel.”

Islamic Jihad has refused to observe a calm in attacks against Israel agreed by Gaza’s Hamas rulers and other groups.

The air raids came after tensions rose along the Israel-Gaza border this week following clashes and a rocket attack on the Israeli city of Beersheba that hit a house but caused no casualties.

It was the first rocket to strike the city since the devastating offensive Israel waged against Gaza in December 2008-January 2009 and prompted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to warn the territory’s militants not to “test” Israel.
