Israeli Airstrikes Hit Five Gaza Targets

GAZA, Aug. 5 (UPI) — Israel’s air force hit five targets in Gaza Friday in response to increased rocket fire in recent days, an Israeli military spokesman said.

The spokesman confirmed Israeli aircraft hit four tunnels and one base operated by reputed terrorists in central Gaza and struck another target in the southern tip, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Several buildings were on fire in Khan Youris after the strikes but no injuries were reported, Palestinian sources said.

On Thursday, the Israeli military conducted an airstrike in retaliation for a rocket fired from Gaza that exploded in the Lachish area. The Palestinian news agency WAFA said one person was injured in the strike in the eastern of Gaza.

    Hooray for Israel, keep the rats running. Israel a country of 3.8 million , the size of Rhode Island, yet the third most powerful military in the world. And you muslim’s still deny they are the seed of Abraham. The bible says they will be a thorn in the side of all nations. And all nations will turn there back on Israel, we the U.S. is the last friend of Israel, and Obama is turning his back on them. The world is prime,for the end times, the bible describes a time of chaos, rumors of wars,global economic collapse, loss of freedom, just when it looks like no hope, the anti christ will emerge with a paln to save the world, with a one world bank,one world goverment, he will bring a fake peace, the world will prosper for 3.5 years, then all hell will break lose for 3.5 years,1/3 of the world population will die, when all hope is lost, then Christ will come and save the world from total liberal destruction.

      Rockets made in IRAN.

      As an American, if say, Canada started shooting rockets into my home town: America would be getting a 51st state.

      God bless Israel.
