GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli airstrike targeted the Rafah crossing with Egypt on Wednesday, causing injuries and damages, the director of Gaza border crossings said.

Four Palestinians, two of them children, were injured when Israeli missiles hit the crossing's waiting room, Maher Abu Sabha told Ma'an.

Abu Sabha urged Palestinians not to travel to the Rafah crossing for their own safety.

Israeli warplanes also targeted Kerem Shalom crossing with Israel on Wednesday, he added.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the incidents.
