Israeli Warplanes Pound Targets in Gaza

Israeli Air Force planes attacked five sites in the Gaza Strip.

The early Sunday morning attacks on three weapons manufacturing facilities in the central Gaza Strip and two tunnels that the Israel Defense Forces say are used to commit terrorist acts against Israeli military patrols in the area, was in retaliation for an attack on June 1 near the security fence with Gaza in which one Israeli soldier was killed, according to the IDF spokespersons office.

The Palestinian news service Ma’an reported Sunday morning that Israeli planes struck the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza, wounding seven people including four children.

The sites targeted by the Air Force belong to the Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror organizations, Israeli military sources said.

A Palestinian gunman infiltrated the Israel-Gaza borer early on the morning of June 1, killing Staff-Sgt Netanel Moshiashvili of Ashkelon.
