Israel Launched Air Attacks on Gaza

by Anita Ogona

Israel launched air attacks on Gaza hours after rockets were fired near Tel Aviv, raising fears of a major escalation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 

Explosions were heard in the Gaza Strip early on Friday and Palestinian witnesses said Israeli planes bombed Hamas security positions.

About 30 raids targeted positions held by the military wing of Hamas and its ally Islamic Jihad, causing significant damage, a Gaza Palestinian security source told AFP news agency.

Local Palestinian agencies reported that a woman and her husband were both injured in the southern city of Rafah, but did not provide further details.

The Israeli military said it was attacking “terror sites” in Gaza, hours after it said two rockets were launched from the enclave at the Tel Aviv area. In a tweet the Israeli army said it had targeted 100 “Hamas military targets”.

The air attacks were taking place in the southern Gaza town of Khan Younis, about 25km south of Gaza City.
