Israeli military strikes targets in Gaza after rocket attack

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Israeli military said it has struck two targets in the Gaza Strip in response to rocket fire coming from the territory, according to the Associated Press.

No injuries were reported from Gaza or Israel.

The military said its aircraft hit an underground rocket launcher and a "terror site" in separate parts of the coastal area early on Tuesday, Feb 11.

Violence has spiked in recent weeks along the Gaza-Israel border after a period of relative calm following a 2012 battle between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers.

The military said more than 30 rockets have been launched toward Israel since the beginning of the year.

Israel this week targeted a militant accused of carrying out numerous rocket attacks on Israel. The man, identified as Abdallah Kharti, was critically wounded in the strike.
