Israeli Warplanes Double Strike Gaza

Israeli warplanes have launched a double air strike on the Gaza Strip, bombarding certain areas of the coastal sliver, Palestinians say.

Military jets belonging to the Israeli Air Force twice struck an area near the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah on Saturday night, a Palestinian medical source said.

The latest assault caused further damage to the inoperative Gaza airport at Rafah, AFP reported on Sunday.

There have been no reports of casualties so far.

An Israeli military spokesman confirmed the strikes, claiming the raids were launched "in response to rocket fire" on Saturday.

Earlier on Friday night, Israeli jets fired five missiles near the tunnel area along the Egyptian border, which is located near the Rafah airport.

In a separate attack on Wednesday, about 16 Palestinians were critically injured by Israeli air raids.
