GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli air forces on Tuesday launched airstrikes at targets in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip, locals said and Israeli security officials confirmed.

Locals said the airstrikes targeted two chicken farms in the al-Manara neighborhood in Khan Younis and a tunnel belonging to Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades in the north.

Witnesses said Israeli forces also targeted a training site for Islamic Jihad's al-Quds Brigades. The site was empty and no injuries were reported.

The Israeli army said the attacks followed reports of rocket fire while soldiers were operating near a border fence. Israel said the fire was aimed at the soldiers but no injuries were reported.

Israeli jets were flying over Gaza for hours late Tuesday.

An Israeli army statement said the air force "retaliated and targeted a weapon manufacturing facility and two terror tunnels in the southern Gaza Strip, and a location used for terror activity in the northern Gaza Strip."

It added: "Direct hits were confirmed."

Army spokesman Peter Lerner said that "IDF soldiers came under terrorist fire while engaging in a counter-terrorism activity. Attempts of attacking soldiers will not, by any means, be tolerated by the IDF."

''Locals said the airstrikes targeted two chicken farms ''...... The Arab likes there ''chicken farms'' masquerading as military bases. When the Israelis attacked the nuclear reactor in Syria’s Deir el Zor region, on September 6, 2007 (Operation Orchard). We were also told they had hit a ‘’chicken farm’’.

Can you get of this site, and clear up your room? And bring down those soiled underpants for washing.

Once again Israel punishes an entire population. Using words like direct hits. Until these core fundamentals are challenged and overcome Palestinians and Arabs will be unable to move forward

Palestinians in Gaza can enjoy fried chicken now. And no cooking oil is needed any more. The chicken is pre-fried. Palestinians just need to bring salt and pepper.

The IDF are chickens. They're afraid of a fair fight so they bomb civilians from the air with American planes.
