Israel launches airstrikes on Gaza in response to rockets firing

GAZA, March 9 (Xinhua) — Israeli war jets carried out at midnight Friday two airstrikes on military facilities and posts that belong to Islamic Hamas movement in northern and eastern Gaza Strip with no injuries reported, Gaza security officials said on Saturday.

The Israeli war jets struck a military facility that belongs to Hamas naval forces in northern Gaza Strip, they said, adding that no injuries were reported, but severe damages were caused to the facility.

They also said that the Israeli war jets carried out four airstrikes on military facilities all over the Gaza Strip with no injuries reported.

Earlier on Friday night, an Israeli army spokesman said that a homemade rocket was fired from the coastal enclave into southern Israel and the rocket landed on an empty field.

Over the past few days, Israeli army war planes and drones have been striking on military facilities and posts in the Gaza Strip after Gaza activists released several arson balloons carrying explosive devices into southern Israel.
