Israeli war jets strike back the central Gaza

The Hamas facility suffered a direct hit from the Israeli airstrike

Israeli war jets attacked Hamas facility in center of Strip last Friday night, wounding two people, medics and security officials said.

Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry said two people were injured in the strike.
Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra told AFP that one person was seriously hurt and the other moderately in the strike on a training facility of the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, near El Bureij refugee camp in the centre of the strip.

Ashraf al-Qedra, Gaza health ministry spokesman, told reporters that two security men were lightly injured by the shrapnel of an Israeli missile which was fired at an area east of Nuseirat refugee camp in central part of the coastal enclave.

Gaza militants fired two rockets from central Gaza Strip into southern Israel but air strike came shortly after. No damages or injuries were reported, according to Israel Public Radio.

The rocket, which targeted civilians in southern Israel, landed in an open area, causing no injuries was confirmed by Israeli military.

The statement said the air attack was carried out against a "Hamas terror infrastructure" in Gaza.

 “Since the beginning of August multiple rockets have been fired towards southern Israel, most falling short in the Gaza Strip. Israelis and Palestinians deserve to live normal lives but instead terrorists choose to use the Gaza Strip as a launch pad for rocket attacks. Hamas, must fulfill its responsibilities or face the consequences,” IDF spokesman Peter Lerner said in a statement.

In addition a militant group, loyal to the Islamic State (IS) militant group, claimed responsibility for launching two rockets from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel.

The group said in a leaflet emailed to reporters that its militants fired two rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israel "in response to the Jewish daily storming of al-Aqsa Mosque and cursing Prophet Mohamed."

The leaflet was signed by the black and white flag of IS and the group, which claimed responsibility for firing the two rockets, called itself "the grandchildren of Mohamed's Followers .
