Two Palestinians were hurt when Israeli F16 fighter jets attacked western Gaza City on Saturday morning, a health ministry spokesman said.
Medics and firefighters rushed to the scene at the Ash-Shifa Medical center.
The Israeli military said that it had raided two areas in the Gaza Strip in retaliation to homemade rockets fired into the south of the country.
"The sites were targeted in response to the continuous rocket fire towards southern Israel," it said in a statement, adding that the two areas are “training facilities” used by fighters of the Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas.
“The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip," it said.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
