Israeli airplanes carried out an airstrike in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday after militants fired missiles into Israel, Xinhua reported according to witnesses and security sources.

The airplanes fired two rockets at a car wash garage in northern Gaza Strip, causing severe damage in the place and smashing windows of nearby houses, the witnesses said.

A woman was slightly wounded in the leg by a flying piece of glass, said Adham Abu Selmia, an emergency official.The Israeli attack came shortly after two Palestinian missiles landed in Western Negev in Israel, causing light damage to a house.

Israeli media reports quoted Israeli officials as saying that they fear an increase in cross-border violence over the summer.

In April, Hamas, which controls Gaza, reached an agreement with other Palestinian groups to restrain and commit themselves again to a shaky ceasefire that has held since the end of Israel's major offensive here in January 2009.
