Hamas fighter killed as Israel strikes Gaza after rockets fired from enclave

Hamas fighter killed as Israel strikes Gaza after rockets fired from enclave

Gaza health ministry said two of the victims were a pregnant Palestinian woman and her 18-month-old child, another victim was a Palestinian man.

In another separate incident on Wednesday, IDF said that "terrorists fired shots at civilians" engaged in the construction of the barrier along the security fence near the northern Gaza Strip and that an engineering vehicle was hit.

Israel launched strikes on Wednesday after dozens of rockets were fired into Israeli territory by Hamas.

A Palestinian was killed in northern Gaza, while at least six were wounded in raids aimed targeting sites across the strip, the Gazan health ministry said.

Qatar and Turkey are also involved in facilitating the talks alongside the United Nations and Egypt, the source said.

Israel's military later confirmed it struck Gaza, saying it hit 12 Hamas sites in all, including "an offensive maritime terror tunnel. several terror sites in military compounds throughout the Gaza Strip. rocket manufacturing facilities and a central logistical military complex".

A statement by Hamas' military force said it was responsible for the rockets.

Sirens were sounded in several areas close to the border with Gaza, warning residents to seek immediate shelter, the Israeli army said.

Gaza residents reported several Israeli airstrikes after the Palestinian rocket barrage.

The majority hit open areas while 11 were intercepted, it said.

However, earlier in the evening, at least two Israelis were injured as a result of rockets that landed in Sderot.

In response, a tank targeted a Hamas position, since Israel holds the organization responsible for all violence coming from Gaza.

Parts of the town have been closed off and police bomb disposal units were at the scene of the strikes, a spokesman for the force said.

The nearly daily airborne arson attacks have been part of months of weekly border protests led by the Islamic militant group Hamas that rules Gaza aimed in part at drawing attention to the Israeli-Egyptian blockade imposed after it took control of the territory in 2007.

In an earlier statement, the Israeli military said gunmen had fired on its soldiers from a Hamas post, which was shelled by a tank in response.

Clashes along the Gaza border since the end of March have seen at least 165 Palestinians killed by Israeli fire.

The protests call for Palestinians to be able to return to the land they or their families fled or were expelled from in the 1948 war that established the state of Israel.

The last war in 2014 ended with a tense ceasefire and analysts say another round of conflict remains likely.
