Israel attacks underground infrastructure in Gaza

IANS | Jerusalem |

Israeli warplanes attacked an underground infrastructure in the Gaza Strip on Monday hours after a rocket was launched at Israel from Palestinian territory, the military said.

The fighting marked the third consecutive day of exchanges of fire, reports Efe news.

“A short while ago, in response to the rocket that was launched at Israel earlier today (Monday), IAF (Israeli Air Force) fighter jets targeted underground infrastructure in the southern Gaza Strip,” the Israeli Defence Forces said in a statement.

The airstrikes were in response to a projectile that fell on the Israeli territory of Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council without causing damage.

Although no one has yet claimed responsibility for the projectile’s launch, the Israeli military blamed the Hamas.
