GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Four Palestinians were injured as dozens of Israeli airstrikes rocked Gaza overnight, a Palestinian official said Tuesday.

Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for the Palestinian health ministry, said that four workers sustained moderate to serious injuries as airstrikes hit evacuated Israeli settlements.

The four were taken to Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis, al-Qidra said.

South of Khan Younis, airstrikes hit a military training site belong to Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades, witnesses said.

Locals said that 13 airstrikes hit the outskirts of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, targeting sites belonging to the military wings of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Resistance Committees.

More airstrikes were fired at an al-Qassam site in Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip, causing damage.

A statement from the Israeli army said "aircraft carried out a precision strike against 34 targets in the Gaza Strip."

Strikes were carried out "following over 18 rockets which were fired (from Gaza) at Israel since Sunday evening," the statement said.

Earlier, Israeli forces in the West Bank found the bodies of three Israeli teens who went missing on June 12.

Israel blames Hamas for kidnapping and killing the teens, but the Islamist movement denies involvement.
