GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli warplanes continued to strike several targets across the Gaza Strip overnight and early Saturday morning for the second day bringing the death toll to 12, and injuries to 20.

Islamic Jihad’s military wing the Al-Quds Brigades said in a statement that 10 of their fighters were killed since Friday. It said the group launched 41 Grad missiles, 20 homemade projectiles, six mortar shells, and three 107-mm rockets at Israeli targets.

A Ma'an reporter identified the 12 dead as Muhammad al-Ghamry, Fayiq Saad, Muatasim Hajjaj, Ubeid Gharabli, Muhammad Hararah, Hazim Qureiqi, Shadi Sayqali, Zuheir al-Qaysi, Mahmoud Hanani, Muhammad Maghari, Mahmoud Najim, and Ahmad Hajjaj.

Medical sources, meanwhile, said 26-year-old Muhammad al-Ghamry succumbed to wounds he sustained Saturday morning as Israeli warplanes targeted a car on Salah Ad-Din Street off the coast in Deir Al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.

They said Islamic Jihad operatives Ahmad Hajjaj, Fayiq Saad, and Muatasim Hajjaj were targeted by fighter jets early Saturday as they were walking near the building of the Palestinian Legislative Council in the Shujaiyyah neighborhood in Gaza City. Fayiq Saad and Muatasim Hajjaj were killed immediately, while Ahmad Hajjaj sustained mortal wounds and was pronounced dead shortly after he was evacuated.

In Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip, an Israeli airstrike killed Muhammad Maghari and Mahmoud Najim on Hutayba street early Saturday.

Another Israeli raid injured four Palestinians from the same family as a rocket hit a basement on Yarmouk Street in Gaza City, according to medical sources.

Warplanes also targeted a military base used by Hamas’ military wing the al-Qassam Brigades in western Gaza City. The base was hit twice. No injuries have been reported, however, the attack resulted in power cuts in several neighborhoods.

Another airstrike hit a security base west of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

Israel's military says over 45 rockets have struck sites in the south, injuring four people, one severely, one moderately and two lightly.

It's "Iron Dome" missile defense system has intercepted over 10 Grad rockets which the army says which were fired at the cities of Beer Sheva, Ashdod and Ashkelon.

Israel said its aircraft targeted two weapon manufacturing facilities and two rocket launching sites in northern Gaza, a weapon manufacturing facility in central Gaza and a "terror activity site" in southern Gaza.

Aircraft targeted a fighter in central Gaza and six additional squads who were in the final stages of preparing to fire rockets at Israel from separate locations in northern and central Gaza, the army said.

I imagine Israel feels better now. So much more satisfying than Iran. "...Iron Dome intercepts rockets...12 Palestinians reportedly killed in IAF strikes in Gaza since Friday..." I wonder if she's going to milk this for another 'Cast Lead'? At any rate, three guesses who will wind up paying for those 'Iron Dome' rockets...and they're not cheap. But hey: the little nipper's having fun again. So heartening to see him all breathless and excited, roses back in his cheeks and all.

@7: Interesting. Now we are not human. Someone said that once before. Anyway, please isolate yourself from us by not coming here, although I suspect you would not pass the security screening anyway.
