Gaza militants renew rocket attacks after Israeli airstrikes
Palestinian militants fired another rocket into southern Israel Friday morning, after a day of pin-point Israeli airstrikes which retaliated against more such rocket attacks, reported dpa.
Israeli security forces were still tracking down the rocket's landing place, a military spokesman in Tel Aviv said.
Israel bombed four smuggling tunnels in the southern Gaza town of Rafah Thursday night, after destroying a fifth tunnel earlier in the afternoon.
A third airstrike in the morning against a group of gunmen in central Gaza who had fired an anti-tank missile at an Israeli border patrol killed two Islamic Jihad militants, while a senior commander of the radical faction died in a strike on his car in northern Gaza Wednesday night.
The Islamic Jihad had vowed to revenge his death.
Palestinian militants fired a total of 10 rockets at Israel Thursday, one of which landed in the courtyard of a synagogue in the evening, causing no injuries.
Altogether, militants in Gaza have launched more than 140 rockets and mortar shells at southern Israel since January 18, when it ended a ferocious and deadly 22-day offensive aimed at curbing such attacks.
