Israeli air strike follows Gaza rocket attacks

Israeli warplanes launched air strike overnight on targets in Gaza Strip.



Gaza City: Israeli warplanes launched a double air strike overnight on targets in the Gaza Strip after militants fired two rockets at the Jewish state, Palestinian and Israeli military officials said on Sunday.

No casualties were reported in Gaza or Israel.

The Israeli aircraft twice struck a target in the area of the disused and wrecked Gaza airport at Rafah in the south, bordering Egypt, a Palestinian medical source said.

An Israeli military spokesman said the raid was "in response to rocket fire" yesterday, and that the target was a tunnel "used to infiltrate terrorists" into Israel.

Yesterday, Palestinian militants in the densely-populated enclave had fired two rockets at southern Israel, causing neither casualties nor damage, the military said.

One rocket, fired from the north of the territory, hit open ground near the southern port city of Ashkelon, the military spokesman said, adding that the second fell inside the Gaza Strip itself.

It was the second night in a row that Israeli warplanes attacked Gaza. Overnight on Friday, Palestinian security officials and witnesses reported six raids, while Israel said there were just two.

Again, no casualties were reported.
