Gaza City, Feb 7 – Israel launched several air raids against targets in southern Gaza near the border with Egypt late Friday, according to witnesses and Palestinian security sources.
The raids near the Rafah sector did not cause injuries, the sources said.
An Israeli military spokesman confirmed that the “Israeli air force intervened in the Gaza Strip,” but he did not provide further details.
The raids came hours after Palestinian militants fired two rockets at southern Israel without causing damage or victims, according to a military spokesman.
Palestinian guerrillas have fired about 40 rockets and mortar rounds since Israel ended its 22-day military offensive against the Palestinian territory on January 18.
Israel, which launched its assault on December 27 with the stated aim of stemming rocket attacks, has warned of “the severest riposte” to any further rocket fire.
