Israeli army strikes Gaza after alleged rocket fire

The IDF said Thursday evening that Israelis living north of the Gaza Strip can return to their normal lives after a series of strikes in Gaza. Gaza's health ministry reported that two Palestinians were injured in Israel's attacks.

Following the mortar fire, Israeli jets targeted four military sites belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, Conricus said.

Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem denounced Thursday Israeli raids, stressing that the "will of the Palestinian people won't be broken".

Reported plans to fire Tillerson roil State Department
It is exceedingly rare for a secretary of state, America's face on the global stage, to be fired or to serve for a year or less. Too much churn could fuel the perception of chaos in the Trump White House - perhaps one reason he has yet to pull the trigger.

It was unclear who was responsible for the mortar fire, with a number of militant groups operating in the Gaza Strip, but Israel holds Islamist movement Hamas responsible for all such incidents.

The IDF later said they had used tanks and aircraft to attack four terror targets located in Gaza Strip in response to the mortar shells fired at an adjacent military outpost on the northern border.

A month ago, Israeli forces demolished a tunnel from the Gaza Strip to Israel, killing at least 12 Palestinian militants in the process.

Palestinian security sources in Gaza said two Hamas surveillance points had been hit. Palestinians face near daily fire from forces while tending to their farmland near the border with Israel and while fishing within the reduced fishing area.

The attack apparently set off rocket sirens in the Israeli town of Sderot and other communities surrounding the Gaza Strip.
