Cross-border violence resumes as Israeli warplanes strike Gaza

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-08-25

An Israeli warplane struck a social club in northern Gaza Thursday morning, killing two and injuring a further 20. The attacks were carried out in retaliation for 10 rockets fired from Gaza into Israel Wednesday.

 

AP - The Israeli military says its aircraft have targeted two militant facilities in Gaza in response to rocket fire toward Israel.
 
Palestinian health officials report two dead and 20 injured in an attack early Thursday morning against a club in northern Gaza belonging to the militant Islamic Jihad.
 
The military said in a statement that it struck a weapons storage facility in the northern Gaza Strip as well as a smuggling tunnel and a weapons manufacturing site in the southern Gaza Strip.
 
At least 10 rockets hit Israel Wednesday, causing damage and injuring an infant.
 
The round of violence began last week when gunmen, apparently from Gaza, crossed the border from Egypt and killed eight people. That was followed by massive Palestinian rocket attacks and retaliatory Israeli airstrikes.
