Palestinians inspect a car after it was blown up in Gaza City, July 19, 2015.

Officials say a series of Sunday morning blasts rocked a Gaza district, wounding two people and destroying at least five cars belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants.

Authorities say the explosions targeted the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood, a Hamas stronghold.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. However, pictures at the scene of one of the blasts showed the Islamic State group's flag painted on a wall.

The blasts come amid a power struggle between Hamas and Islamist extremist groups in Gaza.

Some material for this report came from AP and AFP.
