At least 17 people, including children, have been wounded in a series of Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip, Palestinian emergency workers said.
Witnesses and medics said Israeli jets carried out at least five air strikes late on Monday in the northern town of Beit Lahiya and Gaza City.
Witnesses said a security compound for Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, a training camp north of the city and a brickworks and metal foundry in northern Gaza were among the targets.
The Israeli military confirmed one of the strikes, saying it was targeting several Hamas-affiliated fighters in
northern Gaza, as well as a tunnel that it said was used to smuggle weapons.
The military said the strikes were in response to Palestinian rocket fire into Israel.
