Israel strikes multiple targets in Gaza after alleged rocket attack

Israeli fighter jets attacked several targets in the Gaza Strip on Friday morning, allegedly after a rocket fired from the Hamas-ruled Palestinian enclave landed in Israel. The Israeli aggression included two airstrikes against Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza and another two against Rafah City.

Palestinian medical sources said that several people were injured as a result of the strikes; however, no fatalities were reported. The strikes also destroyed two farms, killing farm animals.

The attacks occurred several hours after a rocket allegedly fired from Gaza fell in the Negev desert in the south of Israel, leaving no injuries or damages. Israel holds Hamas responsible for any rockets fired from the Strip and several Palestinians have been killed in recent weeks as a result of Israeli airstrikes.
