Israel hits Gaza targets in retaliatory airstrikes

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli airstrikes reportedly destroyed a weapons manufacturing site and two smuggling tunnels in the Gaza Strip.

Monday’s attacks were in response to rocket and mortar fire from Gaza on southern Israel over the weekend, according to an Israel Defense Forces statement.

No Israeli troops were injured, according to news reports.

Four rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel on Saturday. One reportedly was manufactured outside of Gaza and can be aimed with much better accuracy, according to reports.

More than 100 rockets and mortars have been fired at Israeli territory since the beginning of 2010, the IDF said in its statement.
