GAZA CITY: Israeli warplanes carried out two air strikes on the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday that caused no injuries, Palestinian security sources and witnesses said.
The raids struck targets near Rafah and north of Khan Yunis, near the border with Egypt. An Israeli military spokeswoman neither confirmed nor denied the raids.
Two Israeli soldiers were slightly wounded on Tuesday by mortar shells fired by Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip, the military said.
On Monday an Islamic Jihad militant was killed and an Israeli soldier wounded in an exchange of fire.
