Israeli forces hunting rocket crews in the Gaza Strip killed at least four Palestinians. Thursday’s fatalities, three gunmen and a child, came as Israel tightened its hold on the Gaza refugee camp of Jabalya and the nearby town of Beit Hanoun in a bid to stop Hamas from launching rockets into the Jewish state. Israel is on high alert for renewed terrorist attacks after its forces killed 14 Hamas men at their Gaza training field earlier this week. During Thursday’s clash, Israeli troops reportedly discovered and demolished three metal factories Hamas used to manufacture its Kassam rockets.
