Hamas: Airstrikes reflect Israeli 'confusion'

June 14, 2014 3:42 P.M. (Updated: June 15, 2014 4:09 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip demonstrate Israeli "confusion" amid an ongoing search to find three Israeli settlers missing in the West Bank, the Hamas movement said Saturday.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said in a statement that Israel's targeting of the al-Qassam Brigades military base in the southern Gaza Strip reflects "deterioration of the morale of the Israeli leadership."

"The Israeli leadership is attempting to repair its morale after the incident in Hebron," Barhoum said, referring to the disappearance of three Jewish settlers from the southern West Bank in what some believe may have been a kidnapping.

The Israeli army said it launched airstrikes on two military sites in southern Gaza on Saturday in response to rockets fired from the Strip into Israel.

No injuries from either strike were reported.
