JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel bombed a weapons storage facility in the northern Gaza Strip.

Israel also struck a weapons storage facility on Monday night in response to a Kassam attack earlier that day.

Eleven rockets have been fired from Gaza at Israel in the last week; one resulted in the death of a foreign worker from Thailand.
