Israel strikes Gaza after rocket attack

JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israeli war planes launched strikes against the Gaza Strip early Friday, the army said, shortly after a rocket from the besieged coastal enclave hit an Israeli area.

A statement from the army said that "in response to rocket fire toward Israel," its "aircraft targeted a terror infrastructure site in the central Gaza Strip and three concealed rocket launchers in the northern Gaza Strip."

"Direct hits were confirmed," the statement read.

Palestinian sources within Gaza said that the strikes targeted agricultural land near al-Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza, the town of Beit Hanoun in the north, and another neighborhood in eastern Gaza City.

There were no injuries reported. more
