Israel launches airstrikes in Gaza
December 27, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

JERUSALEM — The Israeli military says it has carried out airstrikes on two targets in the Gaza Strip in response to a pair of rocket attacks.

The army said Thursday’s airstrikes targeted a weapons manufacturing facility and a weapons storage facility. It says “direct hits were confirmed.” Palestinian officials say there were no injuries.

The aerial attacks came hours after Palestinian militants fired two rockets into southern Israel. No injuries were reported.

Earlier this week, a sniper in Gaza shot and killed an Israeli civilian who was working along the border, prompting Israel to respond with airstrikes and artillery fire. It was the heaviest fighting between the sides in more than a year.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a military spokesman, says Israel “will not tolerate daily aggression” from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
