Israel launches more air strikes against the Gaza Strip since the War

Israeli planes bombed during last night and this morning several targets in the Gaza Strip after a rocket fell in a city south of the country. An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed that this is the biggest air strike on Palestinian territory since the War of Gaza in late 2008 and early 2009, three weeks that left more than 1,400 dead.

The rocket 'Grad' launched against Beersheba, southern Israel, fell on Wednesday night in the courtyard of a house. It is also the first time in two years that a rocket falls on the town, known as the capital of the Negev desert. The missile caused no injuries, because the family that lived in the place had checked into a shelter after hearing the warning siren in the city.

The rocket was launched after a day of violent incidents in the area, where a Palestinian was killed and 11 were injured after an attack by Israeli soldiers.
