Israeli warplanes bomb north Gaza, no injuries

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli warplanes bombed the northern Gaza Strip early Wednesday, causing damage but no injuries, casting uncertainty over a truce deal agreed 24 hours earlier.

Israeli airstrikes hit an open area west of Gaza City, sparking a large fire that burned down a wood warehouse and damaged nearby homes, a Ma'an correspondent said.

Palestinian Civil Defense forces said firefighters spent two and a half hours putting out the blaze.

An Israeli army statement said the strike "targeted two terror activity sites ... in response to the rockets fired at Israel over the past day."

Eight rockets hit southern Gaza on Tuesday, injuring an Israeli and damaging cars, a military spokesman said.

Four days of Israeli airstrikes killed 25 Palestinians and wounded more than 80 since Friday, and Gaza militants fired a volley of rockets into Israel, wounding eight Israelis.

Islamic Jihad and the Popular Resistance Committees said Tuesday they had agreed to an Egypt-brokered deal to end hostilities.

An Egyptian official said a truce to end the violence was in effect since 1 a.m. local time (2300 GMT) Tuesday morning.
