Two militants killed in fresh Israeli airstrikes in Gaza

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Islamic Jihad militant group says two of its members have been killed in Israeli airstrikes in the southern Gaza Strip.

According to The Associated Press, the militant group said in a statement that the two were hit early Monday, March 12, in the fourth day of the worst exchange of fire between Israel and the territory in months.

The Israeli military says it carried out eight air attacks against rocket-launching sites and a weapons storage facility.

Israeli police, meanwhile, say 11 rockets were fired into southern Israel.

The current round of violence began on Friday when an Israeli airstrike targeted a militant commander, touching off a cycle of retaliatory rocket attacks and further air raids.
