Israel seeking to eliminate terror group Hamas
Loud explosions echoed across Gaza early Sunday morning, as Israeli planes bombed sites in the Palestinian enclave, hours after at least two rockets were shot at Israel.
Bombings were reported in areas around Khan Yunis and Rafah, in the southern end of the strip, starting at about 3:30 a.m, according to Palestinian sources. There was no immediate word on casualties or damage.
It said direct strikes had been confirmed. Palestinians reported that sites belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad had been targeted. The air strikes came a day after Gazan terrorists fired several rockets at Israel, all which landed in open areas or failed to clear that Palestinian enclave.
The last 10 days have seen an uptick in tit-for-tat Gazan rocket fire and Israeli strikes as tensions have ramped up in the wake of the kidnapping of three Israeli teens in the West Bank, followed by a massive Israeli operation to recover them and destroy the Islamist Hamas movement. source – Times Of Israel
