GAZA (Ma’an) -- Israeli air forces on Friday afternoon conducted several airstrikes along the the border with Gaza, according to official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency.

Wafa reported that Israeli forces struck two outposts in the eastern Gaza Strip allegedly in response to rocket fire from the area.

“Local sources said that the locations were targeted with at least six missiles fired by Israeli warplanes and artillery. They added that smoke plumes were visible in one of the targeted locations, east of Gaza-city neighborhood of al-Tuffah,” Wafa reported.

Israeli forces have conducted several airstrikes in the Gaza Strip over the last month, resulting in the death of four Palestinian fighters.

Last month, Israel conducted explosions on tunnels in the southern Gaza Strip, killing 12 Palestinian fighters with the Hamas and Islamic Jihad movements.
