Israel launches airstrikes on Gaza overnight

June 17, 2014 12:35 P.M. (Updated: June 18, 2014 9:27 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel launched airstrikes on the Gaza Strip overnight, a Ma'an reporter said Tuesday.

Warplanes struck an open area in Khan Younis and two sites in Asda west of the city.

Airstrikes also hit open areas in the eastern Gaza Strip.

No injuries were reported.

The Israeli army confirmed the strikes, saying the Israeli air force "targeted a terror activity site in the southern Gaza Strip, a weapon manufacturing facility in the northern Gaza Strip and two weapon storage facilities in the central and southern Gaza Strip."

"Direct hits were identified," the statement said.

The army said strikes came in response to a rocket fired "at Israel from the Gaza Strip" on Monday night, without providing further details.
