Israeli jets hit Gaza for 2nd time in day

Dec. 21, 2010 5:07 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 23, 2010 10:31 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Two Palestinians were reported injured on Tuesday afternoon when Israeli warplanes dropped a single missile on an area used by members of Hamas' armed wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades, medics confirmed.

The strike was the second round of the day, with jets striking eight sites across the Gaza Strip shortly before sunrise on Tuesday morning. The earlier strikes injured two fighters and one civilian, a security guard in a nearby dairy factory.

The latest strike hit west of the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis, where at least three of the strikes earlier in the day also targeted.

Spokesman for medical and emergency services in Gaza Adham Abu Salmiya said the two injured were transferred to the Abu Yousif An-Najjar Hospital in Khan Younis.

A statement from the Israeli military said the strike targeted a "Hamas terror activity center," and noted that "A direct hit was confirmed."

The military statement said the strike was "in response to the rocket fire directed at Israel's southern communities over the past week," noting that a projectile reported Tuesday morning, which landed near Ashkelon, "was approximately the fifteenth military-use projectile that landed in Israel since Monday morning."
