Israel launches another air strike on Gaza This is the second such attack this week. The Israeli military says its warplanes have struck an underground facility used to make rocket engines. Khabar Al-Jazeera.
The attack took place on Thursday morning. No casualties were immediately reported. Witnesses told Al Jazeera that several houses in the Al-Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza were damaged in the attack.
Earlier in the night, a rocket fired from Gaza hit southern Israel. A house is slightly damaged. However, Israeli police said there were no casualties.
The Israeli military says four more rockets were fired from the blocked coastal area after the airstrikes. However, the air defense system has destroyed them in the sky. So far no Palestinian group has claimed responsibility for the rocket attack.
Hamas, the ruling group in Gaza, said in a statement that the Israeli bombing would only encourage Palestinians to “resist the occupation.” It will further strengthen their support for Jerusalem and its people.
