BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Four children and a woman were injured in Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip early Thursday, medics said.

Several strikes hit areas in the west and east of Gaza City, with all of the injured suffering shrapnel wounds.

Palestinian security officials confirmed that one strike hit a military base used by Hamas' military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades.

Israel's army said it targeted a "terror site, an underground rocket-launcher, a weapon storage facility and a weapon manufacturing site, all in the northern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed."

The airstrikes were in response to five rockets fired from Gaza, all of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome, the army said.

Three Palestinians were injured last Thursday after an Israeli airstrike targeted the southern Gaza Strip.
