Israeli warplanes have launched fresh attacks on the Gaza Strip, pounding several targets across the southern border with Egypt.
Witnesses told Press TV that they saw military jets bombing the strip on Monday, but no casualties have been reported.
The Israeli military confirmed the attacks on southern Gaza, saying the airstrikes targeted the Philadelphi route, an area of “tunnels through which Hamas brings arms into the region.”
It says the attacks came after two Qassam rockets fired from the Gaza Strip landed at the western Negev early Monday morning. The rocket attacks, however, caused no casualties, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Earlier in the day Israeli aircrafts bombed northern areas of the territory, killing one Palestinian and wounding five others.
