Israel strikes on Gaza

The Israeli military yesterday carried out strikes on the Gaza Strip after Palestinian militants fired about 50 mortar rounds and rockets into Israel.
Several children were among those injured when Israeli forces shelled areas east of Khan Younis.
Earlier, rockets launched from Gaza landed in Israel's Eshkol region and near Kerem Shalom. No-one was hurt.
The military wings of Hamas and Islamic Jihad said the attack was a response to an Israeli air strike on Sunday.
Eight civilians were injured in that strike, when a missile hit a motorbike ridden by two militants as it travelled through the southern town of Rafah. The militants - Tlaath Jerbi and Abdullah Maqawi - were seriously hurt.
The Israeli military said it had targeted two members of "global jihadist" groups which were suspected of involvement in a cross-border attack from Egypt in June that left one Israeli dead.
