Israeli army bombs Hamas targets in Gaza following rocket attack

Israeli tanks hits Hamas military posts in southern Gaza Strip, after Palestinian militants fired projectile into Israeli territory.

Israeli tanks struck Hamas military posts in the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday night, after Palestinian militants fired a projectile into Israeli territory, media reports on Wednesday said.

This was the second such incident this week.

No injuries were reported on either side.

Despite a Qatari-brokered truce between Hamas and Israel in August, there have been several flare-ups of violence in recent months.

Israel, the United States and the European Union list Hamas as a terrorist organisation.

Hamas controls the Gaza Strip, where some two million Palestinians live in crowded, impoverished conditions.

Israel has enforced a blockade on the Strip since 2007, joined later by Egypt.

Both argue that the limits on imports are for security reasons. (dpa/NAN)
