Israeli war jets strike Gaza
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2012-10-29 09:27

Israeli F16 war jets struck on Sunday night an empty building under construction east of al-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip, with no injuries reported, security sources and paramedics said.

The warplanes hovered over the coastal enclave at night and fired one missile at the building, which was leveled to ground, said the security sources, adding that residents in the refugee camp heard a huge explosion in the area.

Paramedics who rushed to the area after the missile hit the building said no injuries were reported but severe damage was caused to the building. There was no immediate response from the Israeli army on the attack.

The Israeli airstrike on Sunday night was a response to earlier rockets attacks fired by militants in the Gaza Strip on the southern Israeli city of Beer Sheba, according to Israel Radio.

According to the report, four Russian-made Grad rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip and landed at the southern neighborhood of the Israeli city, causing no injuries.

The pro-Hamas Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) said in a leaflet emailed to reporters that its militants fired the grad rockets from the Gaza Strip on southern Israel in response to last night's killing of a Hamas militant.

On Saturday night, Israeli war jets struck a group of militants east of the southern Gaza town of Khan Younis, killing a Hamas militant and wounding another.

The renewal of the tit-for-tat violence in the Gaza Strip between Israel and the militant groups came two days after the two sides reached an fragile Egyptian-brokered calm.
