Southern Gaza hit by new Israeli air strikes
Saturday, February 7, 2009
Israel launched several air strikes on Friday on an area near Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. The strikes were aimed at a so-called "open area" near the border with Egypt. The strikes were in response to two rockets being fired into southern Israel.
"An arms depot was also targeted and the explosives that were stocked there exploded," the spokesperson said. The raids were "a response to the firing of two Palestinian rockets in the morning."
