GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces injured at least four Palestinians during a bombing near Nuseirat refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip on Friday, witnesses told Ma'an.

The four people injured were rushed to the hospital in ambulances.Their condition is unknown.

Earlier on Friday an Israeli army spokesperson said a rocket was fired at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip, with no injuries or damages reported.

An Israeli army statement released after the bombing on Gaza said the attack was in retaliation to the rocket allegedly fired out of the strip on Friday.

"Since the beginning of August multiple rockets have been fired towards southern Israel, most falling short in the Gaza Strip. Israelis and Palestinians deserve to live normal lives but instead terrorists choose to use the Gaza Strip as a launch pad for rocket attacks. Hamas, must fulfill its responsibilities or face the consequences," Israeli army spokesperson Peter Lerner said in a statement.

In the warped world of Zionism, this probably IS a response to Jewish terrorism.

Please do your research! Did you speak to Hamas to find out if they are actually responsible for this rocket fire?? You are aware that the last rocket fire from Gaza were done by a small group of Salafist extremists sympathetic to ISIS. You do release Israel is trying create another enemy in Gaza.

When Israel ends its ILLEGAL OCCUPATION of Palestine there will be no need for rockets fired in LEGITIMATE RESISTANCE TO OCCUPATION from Gaza. OBEY INTERNATIONAL LAW, Israel, and the problem is solved.

Why does Israel repeatedly attack the refugees living in Gaza...refugees which the 'Jewish forces' expelled to Gaza themselves in the first place? The correct legal and ethical thing to do is let the refugees return to their own country.

To David UK , Israel is an outlaw criminal state. Thus "correct legal and ethical thing to do" is irrelevant and does not apply.
