Israel bombs 'over 100' Gaza sites

Nov. 20, 2012 8:09 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 20, 2012 5:14 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel launched over 100 attacks on sites across the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, bombing the headquarters of a bank and the home of a Hamas commander.

Airstrikes injured two people in Gaza City, one young man in the Shajaya area of Gaza City and a woman after Israel bombed a house in the al-Zaitoun neighborhood.

In Khan Younis, fighter jets targeted the al-Agha tower and a mosque. To the east, drones fired four missiles at a house in Abasan and warplanes completely demolished the home of a Hamas commander, Osama Abu Anza.

The Israeli army said its attacks targeted underground rocket launchers, "terror tunnels" and ammunition storage facilities.

Several people were injured after warplanes bombed the Islamic National Bank in Gaza City, which the army described as a financial institution used by Hamas to "fuel its terror activity."

Others sites came under fire from the navy and Israeli soldiers fired artillery fire toward "suspicious areas," an army statement said.

After dawn, Israeli airstrikes hit the home of Mohammad al-Sultan in the al-Salateen area of Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza. Drones had earlier fired warning shots at his house, which a Ma'an correspondent said was empty at the time.
