Multiple Israeli airstrikes hit Gaza

GAZA (Ma'an) -- Israeli air forces launched air strikes across the Gaza Strip late Wednesday, with no immediate reports of injuries.

The Israeli air strikes came after Islamic Jihad said that it launched 130 rockets into southern Israel in response to Israel's killing of three of its members on Tuesday.

Israeli air strikes hit a number of military targets across the besieged coastal enclave, as well as a number of open areas.

Strikes hit a site belonging the military wing of Islamic Jihad in Rafah as well as an open area in the southern Gaza Strip.

The empty land that was hit by the air strike was in al-Nasser neighborhood, while it was not clear where in Rafah the military site belonging to the al-Quds Brigades was.

Three rockets were also fired at the Huttein military site belonging to the al-Quds Brigades in the northern Gaza Strip, and no injuries were reported in that strike.

The Israeli air forces also launched a strike on al-Quds Brigades in al-Qara neighborhood in Khan Younis, and another site belonging to the al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing on Hamas, west of Rafah.

Israeli air forces also launched four air strikes against a site belonging to the al-Qassam Brigades site Areen-2 west of Rafah.

Earlier, Israeli air forces bombed a target north of Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip.

Local sources said an Israeli drone fired a rocket at an empty land near a residential area in the northern Gaza Strip neighborhood.

No injuries were reported in any of the strikes.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment. more
