Three people injured as Israel bombed Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip

Vastavam web: Three people were injured, including one critically, as Israel bombed Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian security and medical sources have said, hours after a rocket hit the Jewish state.A security source told AFP that Israeli warplanes had struck two bases belonging to Hamas’ military wing in northern Gaza last night, causing significant damage.The Israeli army confirmed the strikes, saying they were in retaliation for a rocket fired a few hours earlier from Gaza, which landed in southern Israel.

That incident caused no casualties or damage, a military spokesperson added.Since the most recent conflict in 2014, a fragile ceasefire has been observed along the largely closed border.Missiles and rockets are periodically fired into Israel, generally by hardline Islamist groups opposed to Hamas.
