Israel bombs Gaza sites


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli Air Force planes attacked five sites in the Gaza Strip two days after an Israeli soldier was killed near the security fence with Gaza.

The early Sunday morning attacks targeted what the Israel Defense Forces described as three weapons manufacturing facilities in the central Gaza Strip and two tunnels allegedly used to attack Israeli military patrols in the area. 

The Palestinian news service Ma’an reported Sunday morning that Israeli planes struck the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza, wounding seven people, including four children. The sites targeted by the air force belong to the Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror organizations, Israeli military sources said.

A Palestinian gunman infiltrated the Israel-Gaza borer early Friday morning, killing Netanel Moshiashvili of Ashkelon.
