Israeli planes bombed targets in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, injuring seven Palestinians, medical sources said. According to Reuters, an army spokesman said the strikes had targeted two factories in the central and northern Gaza used to make weapons and a smuggling tunnel under along the border with Egypt.

 

Palestinian witnesses and medical workers said the targets included a metal foundry in the central Gaza Strip, a caravan in the north and smuggling tunnels in the south.

 

The attacks reported one day after Hamas said it had reached an agreement with other armed groups in the Strip to halt rocket fire towards Israel.

 

The Israeli army spokesman said the air strikes were in response to a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip on Saturday.
