Israel bombs Gaza in response to rockets

Israel’s Air Force bombed three sites in Gaza in response to attacks from Palestinians in the coastal strip.

Two sites in southern Gaza and one in central Gaza identified by the Israel Defense Forces as “terror activity sites” were targeted April 21 “in response to the latest severe aggression emanating from Gaza,” the IDF said in a statement.

Seven rockets were fired from Gaza at southern Israel that day. One rocket caused damage to a road and several stores in Sderot, according to reports.

Since the beginning of 2014, 100 rockets fired from Gaza have hit southern Israel. — jta
