IDF bombs Gaza tunnels

One Palestinian wounded in two strikes army says came in response to rocket fire on Negev

The Air Force carried out two strikes Saturday night in southern Gaza, wounding one Palestinian, witnesses and Hamas officials said.


The first strike occurred near Khan Younis and the second was aimed at smuggling tunnels in Rafah near the Egyptian border, Palestinian sources said.


A Palestinian who was in his house during the second attack was injured by shattering glass, they added.


In the morning, Palestinian militants fired a rocket into southern Israel from the Gaza Strip, causing no casualties. The rocket exploded in a field near the border with the Palestinian territory, the IDF said.


The IDF Spokesperson's Office said both attacks had been launched "in response to rocket fire." The army says about 180 rockets and mortar shells were fired from Gaza into Israel since the beginning of the year.
