Israel continues raids: Three Hamas members die
At least three Hamas members were killed and two others injured in an Israeli missile strike in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, Palestinian medical workers said. According to Reuters, locals said the group of fighters had been firing mortars at Israel at the time of the strike. The incident took place around the town of Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip.
An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed the army carried out an air strike on activists who were about to fire mortars into Israel. Israel said that on Tuesday alone, Palestinians fired 21 rockets and mortars against Israeli targets, bringing the total thus far this year to about 2,000.
