BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Four children and a woman were injured in Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip early Thursday, medics said.

Several strikes hit areas in the west and east of Gaza City, with all of the injured suffering shrapnel wounds.

Palestinian security officials confirmed that one strike hit a military base used by Hamas' military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades.

Israel's army said it targeted a "terror site, an underground rocket-launcher, a weapon storage facility and a weapon manufacturing site, all in the northern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed."

The airstrikes were in response to five rockets fired from Gaza, all of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome, the army said.

Three Palestinians were injured last Thursday after an Israeli airstrike targeted the southern Gaza Strip.

'...five rockets fired from Gaza, all of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome...' To put it differently, the five Gaza rockets destroyed $50,000.00 worth of Israeli military hardware.

Just think, Colin, if the native Americans had had gattling guns in the 1700s to protect themselves from you. They could have fought back fairly and turfed your great grandparents off of their lands. But they didn't. You won, they lost. And now you gave them a passport and the right to vote. How mighty white of you! Now Indian arrowheads are worth a few bucks each. Maybe in 300 years Qassam rocket shells will also be collectors items.

To the yankee id i ot, colin, it doesnt matter if it costs Israel USD 1 million, it saves Israeli lives, the monetary side of it is irrelevant & in any case as you so often remind everyone, the american tax payer pays for iron dome, so no problem for Israeli economy.

Iron Dome is like a fly swatter. Five flies dead. No one asks how much a fly swatter costs.

$50,000 seems like good deal for shooting rockets out of the sky, it I imagine it costs way more than that

Brian- you are correct. The Americans should do more compensate the Americans just as the Jews should with the Palestinians.
