Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) confirmed that its F16 fighters have carried out at least seven missile attacks on the Gaza Strip on Friday, targeting two weapons-manufacturing plants and two arm caches, all in response to a Palestinian short-range rocket fired across the border on Thursday. However, the attack caused no damage.
According to witnesses and officials, four air strikes blew up two caravans near the town of Khan Younis with no casualties. The fifth missile hit a cheese factory in Gaza City. Israeli helicopters struck twice in the central refugee camp of Nusseirat, destroying a metal foundry.
