Israeli airstrikes hit Gaza, 1 Palestinian wounded

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian was wounded when Israeli warplanes launched airstrikes at five sites in the central and northern besieged Gaza Strip on Saturday morning.

Locals said that the wounded Palestinian's identity was not yet identified.

Hebrew-language news outlet Walla said that Israeli forces hit several Hamas movement sites in response to an Israeli army officer sustaining wounds after a locally-made bomb was thrown at him at the borders of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army said in a statement that it targeted tunnels and sites used for the preparation of incendiary kites and explosive balloons.

Sources added that sirens sounded in Gaza border Israeli communities immediately after the Israelis launched missiles at Gaza, followed by sounds of explosions after the Hamas movement had fired several rockets at nearby Israeli communities.

The Iron Dome system intercepted at least five missile launches near the illegal Israeli settlement of Sderot.

Sources mentioned that about 31 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israeli communities surrounding the Gaza Strip, adding that the rockets were continuously fired overnight until Saturday morning when Israel began to shell Gaza in response.
