Army: 7 projectiles fired from Gaza toward southern Israel

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Militants in the Gaza Strip launched six rockets and a mortar shell toward populated areas in the southern Negev region, Israel's military said late Friday.

The country's anti-rocket Iron Dome system intercepted two of the rockets, an army spokeswoman told Ma'an.

There were no reports of injury or damage.

Hours earlier, two Palestinians were killed and two others were wounded after Israel's air force bombed a car traveling near al-Shati refugee camp in Gaza City.

The killing was the first targeted assassination by Israel since the formation of the Palestinian national unity government at the beginning of June.

The two were apparently affiliated with the al-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees.

The Popular Resistance Committees is a Gaza-based militant group that opposes negotiations with Israel and frequently fires rockets from Gaza.

Israel's army said it targeted the "terror operatives" due to their involvement in launching rockets at Israel over the past week.

Both men were planning further attacks against Israel, it added.

The strike comes amid increased tensions across the region as an Israeli military campaign across the West Bank enters into its second week.

The campaign, which is the largest deployment since the early 2000s, has left eight Palestinians dead, more than 130 wounded, and more than 560 detained.

It has also meant near nightly airstrikes for Gaza, as Israeli forces pound the besieged coastal enclave in response to rocket attacks by local militants angry about the West Bank offensive.

Israel should launch 7 projectiles back at Gaza this and every time, until the people of Gaza condemns Hamas and all the militants, for trading Palestinian blood - both militants' & civilians', for the essentially unnoticed holes in Israel's desert sands, that the stupid militants' mortars and rockets can make !!

You can resist the occupation by standing still. They have rockets, hitting their target or not they do the job with obviously a retaliation from Israel with more advance weapons. Occupy people always resist their occupation. Israel need to remember what the Jews did in Warsaw. They resisted, fought and they lost. But they resisted. Were they terrorists?. For the Nazis yes they were. But for the Jews they were resistance fighters. Now let Israel put themselves in the Palestinians shoes.
