Gaza-Israel hostilities flare with rocket attacks and air strike

Rocket attack and air strike is not something new between this two country. On Saturday Gaza militants fired dozens of rockets into Israel with Israel retaliating with wave of Israeli air strikes that killed one Palestinian gunman, as hostilities flared across the border for a second day.

The escalation began on Friday, when two Israeli soldiers were wounded by Gaza gunfire near the border. A retaliatory Israeli air strike killed two militants from the Islamist Hamas group that governs Gaza. Two other Palestinians protesting near the frontier were also killed by Israeli forces according to Reuter.

Israeli military said its forces had carried out attacks against more than 30 targets belonging to Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad militant group.

Evacuations of schools have been carried out in areas under attack. A small armed pro-Hamas group in Gaza, The Protectors of Al-Aqsa, said one of its men was killed in an air strike on Saturday.

The Gaza Health Ministry said six Palestinians were wounded. Residents identified two of them as militants.
