GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Eleven Palestinians were injured overnight Wednesday as Israel attacked 15 targets in the Gaza Strip, medics said.

Gaza health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said 11 Palestinians were hospitalized following multiple airstrikes, including a 17-year-old boy who sustained shrapnel wounds near Gaza City.

Another airstrike targeted a Hamas training base west of Gaza City, with an elderly woman and teenage girl sustaining injuries in the northern Gaza Strip.

Three airstrikes targeted Hamas training bases in the al-Shujaiyya neighborhood of Gaza City and the city of Beit Hanoun, while a further three airstrikes targeted an area near the former PA intelligence headquarters in northern Gaza.

In southern Gaza, an airstrike targeted a military base belonging to Hamas near Rafah.

Israel's army said it carried out strikes against 15 Hamas targets in Gaza "including concealed rocket launchers, weapon storage facilities and terror activity sites."

Twenty rockets were fired at Israel since Wednesday, Israel's army said, with one hitting a home in the city of Sderot, with no injuries reported.
