Gaza Strip: One killed, one missing following Israeli raids
Israeli warplanes launched three raids against the southern Gaza Strip, killing one, injuring three and leaving one more missing, Palestinian medical and security sources said. Two raids late Saturday targeted smuggling tunnels running under the border with Egypt at Rafah, injuring two people.
One of the tunnels collapsed, killing one person. Another person was missing and a third was seriously injured, witnesses told AFP. The other raid targeted a former base used by the armed wing of the Hamas.
An Israeli military spokesman confirmed the three raids, saying that one was aimed at "a tunnel dug in the direction of Israeli territory" for attacks across the border.
The air strikes follow the firing of a rocket from Gaza into Israel by PalestinianS on Saturday, which caused no casualties or damage, according to the Israeli military.
