article imageIsrael strikes targets in Gaza following rocket attack

By Paul Iddon     Jun 18, 2014 in Politics
After a rocket hit a home in the Israeli kibbutz near the Palestinian Gaza Strip the Israeli Air Force launched air strikes on targets in Gaza.
Times of Israel quotes an IDF statement that informs us that an, "IAF aircraft targeted a terror activity site, a terror infrastructure site and a concealed rocket launcher in the northern Gaza Strip and two terror activity sites in the central Gaza Strip."
Palestinian medical sources say that three people were injured in those air strikes. The rocket attack on a kibbutz in the Israeli Sha'ar HaNegev region left no one dead or injured.
The Jerusalem Post reports that these incidents transpired in Gaza around the same time a Palestinian car in the West Bank attempted to run down a soldier near the entrance to an Israeli military base situated near Bethlehem. No damage or injuries occurred as a result of that failed attempt and the car immediately vacated the area after Israeli soldiers opened fire.
These developments come admits increasing tensions in Palestine. Israel rejects Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' claim to be a viable partner for peace since he is now in a national unity government with Hamas.
In the West Bank the IDF are arresting Hamas members and are undergoing large operations to find three Israeli teenagers that group has kidnapped.
