Israeli warplanes also fired three missiles at a site to the north of the Beit Lahia town, north of Gaza, destroying it. They also targeted several areas in Rafah and Khan Younis districts in the south of the Gaza Strip causing heavy damage.

At the same time Israel was attacking Gaza, media reports said its warplanes were attacking different targets in Syria killing at least six people, including two claimed by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad as members of its organization.

Israel claimed the strikes on came in response to rockets fired by Islamic Jihad operatives in Gaza into southern Israel that did not cause any injury or damage.
