Israeli Warplanes Pound Gaza; Four Palestinians İnjured

Strikes come in response to rockets fired from Gaza, Israel claims; Hamas, Islamic Jihad deny responsibility.

Israel carried out intensive overnight air attacks inside the blockaded Gaza Strip early Friday morning, injuring at least four Palestinians, according to Palestinian sources.

"Two civilians were injured in Gaza City while two others were hurt in the southern city of Rafah," Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for Gaza's Health Ministry, said.

According to an Israeli army statement, the strikes came in response to two rockets fired from Gaza towards Tel Aviv on Thursday evening.

Fighter jets and helicopters struck around 100 Hamas targets inside the Gaza Strip, the army said, including sites affiliated with the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas's armed wing) and Saraya al-Quds (Islamic Jihad's armed wing).

"Targets included Hamas's Gaza City headquarters, an underground rocket facility and several military posts," the army statement read.

Both Hamas and Islamic Jihad, for their part, have denied any responsibility for the alleged rocket attack, with the latter group issuing a statement holding Israel responsible for the latest escalation.

Thursday's rocket salvo was the first to be fired toward the greater Tel Aviv area since Israel's devastating 51-day onslaught against Gaza in mid-2014. -
