IDF Hits Gaza Sites After Kassam Attack; Two Dead In West Bank Raid

Israel’s Air Force bombed two targets in Gaza after a Kassam rocket fired from Gaza struck southern Israel and injured a woman.

The Israeli aircraft struck what it called a terror activity site in northern Gaza and a smuggling tunnel in southern Gaza in an early Tuesday morning raid, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

The raid was in response to a Kassam rocket fired from Gaza at southern Israel on Monday, which injured a 50-year-old resident of Hof Ashkelon. Several others were treated for shock.

The IDF "will continue to respond with determination to any attempt to use terror against the citizens of Israel," said a statement from the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.

In another violent clash, two Palestinians were reportedly killed and five Israeli soldiers wounded in an army raid on a West Bank refugee camp.

The soldiers entered the Kalandiyah camp near Ramallah on Monday morning during a routine operation to arrest Palestinian suspects, which set off rioting by the Palestinian residents, according to reports.

Rioters pelted the soldiers with rocks and bottles, injuring the soldiers. Two Palestinians died from gunshot wounds, Ramallah hospital officials told news services. Several Palestinian residents of the refugee camp were arrested.
