Israel attacks Gaza targets


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel’s Air Force attacked several targets in the Gaza Strip.

The attacks late Friday, one which hit four smuggling tunnels on the Gaza-Egypt border, and another which killed a known terrorist for the Global Jihad Movement near Khan Younis, were in retaliation for rocket attacks on Israel, according to a statement from the IDF spokesperson’s office.

Two Kassam rockets and one mortar shell were fired at southern Israel on Friday. There were no injuries or damage reported from the attacks.

On Saturday morning a bomb exploded near an IDF patrol along the Gaza border. No one was injured in the attack.

The attacks came as Hamas continued to insist that a cease-fire deal between Israel and the terrorist organization was imminent.
