Israeli air raids target refugee camps
Added under Palestine/Israel
Two civilians have been injured in air raids on Gaza by Israeli forces, according to Palestinian emergency services officials, while the Israeli military says a projectile has been fired on Israel.
A military spokesman said it was launched from the Gaza Strip into the southern Eshkol region on Sunday. No casualties or damage were reported.
The Israeli army confirmed the air raids by its fighter jets, saying that they were carried out in response to Palestinian rocket attacks on Israeli territory on Saturday.
Two people were wounded in one raid, which targeted the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza. The other attack, on the Jabaliya refugee camp in the north of Gaza, did not result in any casualties.
An Israeli spokesman said one of the raids targeted a Hamas center, while the other was aimed at an arms workshop. Hamas has governed Gaza since winning a power struggle with Fatah in 2006.
Tensions have been rising in Gaza in recent weeks, with Palestinian fighters in the territory firing a series of rockets at Israel, which has retaliated with air raids.
