Israel bombs targets in Gaza, killing one


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli airstrikes hit four targets in the Gaza Strip in retaliation for a rocket attack on Beersheba.

One Palestinian was killed and at least two were injured during the early Tuesday attack, according to reports citing sources in Gaza.

The Israeli Air Force on Tuesday morning also struck a squad of terrorists preparing to fire rockets at Israel, thwarting the attack, the IDF said.

On Monday night, a long-range Grad rocket fired from Gaza struck Beersheba. Israeli protesters living in a large tent city in the city rushed to a nearby building for shelter, Ynet reported.
