Israel strikes 4 Hamas targets in Gaza

Israel struck at Hamas military bases in the Gaza Strip overnight, killing a 10-year-old boy and his 6-year-old sister, a Palestinian official said Saturday.

A 10-year-old Palestinian boy and his six-year-old sister were killed, according to Palestinian medical sources and the al Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas.

Rockets fired from the Gaza Strip by Palestinian militants hit southern Israel on Friday night without causing damage or injuries, the Israeli army said.

Lieutenant Peter Lerner, a spokesman for the Israeli Defense Forces, defended the Gaza airstrike, and told Reuters that Friday's rocket launch was an attempt by Hamas militants to "threaten the security and safety of the people of southern Israel".

The previous year, three lions were also sent from the Gaza Strip to Jordan after the area of their zoo came under heavy Israeli artillery fire.

Seven Palestinians are blocked since Thursday morning in the collapse of a tunnel in the Gaza Strip border with Egypt, latest incident of this kind in the territory, said the rescue.

In a statement, the group said Israel bore responsibility for the death of the child in Beit Lahia and for what it described as the Jewish state's ongoing "war crimes" against the Palestinians.

The Israeli embassy in Paris announced on Saturday that France will oblige a request by Israel to end the broadcast of the Al-Aqsa television station, affiliated with the Gaza-based Hamas movement, over France's EUTELSAT satellite company. "I went to the room and found three of children injured, two badly", said Abu Khousa, whose home is about a mile from Gaza's border with Israel.

A months-long wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence has seen more than 190 Palestinians killed since October 1 of past year, usually following alleged attacks on Israelis or in clashes with Israeli forces.

"Our policy in regard to the Gaza Strip is clear: Israel will not tolerate any rocket fire from Gaza toward Israel", the prime minister said Sunday.

"The military will continue to act to protect those who threaten innocent lives and Israel's sovereignty", he said.

Special correspondent Shuttleworth reported from Jerusalem.
