Israeli Fighter Jets Pound Gaza Strip

Israeli warplanes bombed Gaza Strip in the early hours of Friday, injuring at least two Palestinians.

Palestinian security officials and eyewitnesses said that Israeli aircraft fired at several targets across the Gaza Strip injuring two people.

Israeli warplanes struck a workshop in Gaza City, three tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border and two open fields, witnesses and security officials said.

The Israeli military refused to comment on the incident.

The attack came after a retaliatory rocket attack from Gaza Strip killed a 30-year-old Thai foreign worker, who was working in a greenhouse in Netiv Ha’asara in the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council, north of the Gaza Strip.

The al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade — the armed wing of the Fatah movement — claimed responsibility for the rocket attack.

The airstrikes took place shortly after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu talked with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the phone.
