Gaza Strip: At least two Palestinians hurt in Israel strike
An Israeli military aircraft fired a missile at gunmen in the Gaza Strip on Friday, wounding two of them, after a rocket and a mortar were fired at Israel, Palestinian medical workers said.
An Israeli military spokesman confirmed there had been an air strike after the firing from Gaza Strip at Israel on Friday. According to Reuters, medics in Gaza said they evacuated two gunmen to hospital after an Israeli air strike in northern Gaza Strip.
Two more rockets fired from the Palestinian territory slammed into a southern Israeli town after the air strike and one Israeli was taken to hospital with shrapnel wounds, Israeli rescue services said.
Rocket attacks from Gaza have increased since Israel stepped up raids against Palestinian fighters, killing 10 in two separate incidents since Nov. 4. Israel has also shut border crossings with the coastal territory, blocking food and fuel supplies.
