GAZA CITY (Ma'an) – Israeli warplanes struck several targets in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip Thursday afternoon, security and medical sources told Ma’an.

Locals in Rafah told Ma’an that airstrikes targeted a smuggling tunnel under the borders with Egypt. Three Palestinians were injured in the strike.

Israeli jets also fired missiles at an open area in Rafah. No casualties were reported.

A spokesman of the Hamas-run ministry of health in Gaza Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an that three Palestinian citizens were injured in the airstrike which targeted a tunnel in Rafah.

He confirmed that one victim sustained critical wounds and the two others suffered minor injuries.

In a statement, Israel's military confirmed seven strikes and said they were in response to rocket fire.

"Since yesterday there has seen a substantial deterioration in the safety of the residents in southern Israel. We have responded and will continue to do so in order to eliminate threats as they develop. This is our obligation and responsibility to those exposed to Gaza terrorism," army spokesman Peter Lerner said.

The statement said that two rockets hit southern Israel on Thursday. Approximately 65 have hit Israeli territory since Wednesday, out of which five hit populated areas, it said.

Egypt has destroyed 1370 tunnels into Gaza, which is already besieged by Israel, and rockets are hardly a danger to the mighty IDF. How do you expect imprisoned, unemployed, young people with no hope for their future to react to the inhuman treatment?

I wonder if USG politicians COMPARE this action,on Gaza Ghetto life-line tunnels,to Nazism's destruction of Jewish Resistance life-line tunnels,dug courageously by JEWS in Warsaw Ghetto?Or was that DIFFERENT somehow,because they were Jews?Or is it different.since WW2,that Israeli ultra-nationist occupiers do the same as Nazi's,but are FORGIVEN by the West,for fear being labelled"anti-semite",while Israeli Semites persecute non-Jews! Wake up Israel!
