Israeli war jets hit Gaza targets

Air-to-ground rockets were fired and caused two huge explosions.



Gaza: Israeli war jets struck two targets in southern Gaza Strip on Saturday night in response to an earlier homemade projectile fired from Gaza at southern Israel.

No injuries were reported, witnesses and medics said.

The witnesses said that F16 war jets hovered over the southern Gaza Strip area and carried out two successive airstrikes. Air-to-ground rockets were fired and caused two huge explosions.

The first airstrike targeted an empty olive farm east of the city of Khan Younis and the second targeted a smuggling tunnel under the borderline between Egypt and the salient, ruled by Islamic Hamas movement.

Medics at southern Gaza hospitals said that ambulances and rescue crews rushed to the theatre of the airstrikes, no injuries were reported.

The two Israeli airstrikes were carried out several hours after unknown militants fired earlier Saturday a homemade rocket from Gaza at southern Israel. No one claimed responsibility for the attack.

Israeli Radio quoted Israeli Army sources as saying that the rocket landed on an empty area in southern Israel causing no damages or injuries.
