Palestinians say two wounded in IDF strikes on Gaza
IDF confirms that IAF planes bombed Gaza targets after rocket originating from the strip hit a Be'er Sheva home on Wednesday.
Israel Air Force planes bombed at least three targets in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, medics in the coastal territory said. As a result of the strike, a Palestinian man and a seven-month-old girl were wounded, the medics said.
Medics said a strike launched on a Hamas national guard post in Rafah, a town near Gaza's border with Egypt, hit near a home and the baby was wounded in the head by shrapnel. The injury was not listed as serious and was described as slight.
A Palestinian man, described as a civilian, was wounded moderately in an earlier strike on a militants' training camp in Gaza, the medics said.
Palestinian medics also reported two earlier Israeli air strikes before dawn on Saturday against targets of the Islamic Jihad group. There were no injuries.
The Israel Defense Forces confirmed the attack, saying the IAF bombed a smuggling tunnel and two more terror targets in the southern Gaza Strip.
Islamic Jihad had been blamed for a rocket fired on Wednesday from Gaza that struck the deepest in Israel since a Gaza war of two years ago, damaging a home in the city of Be'er Sheva.
