Retaliatory Rockets Fired from Gaza After Israeli Air Strike

by VOA News

An Israeli air strike on the Gaza Strip before dawn Sunday has hit two Palestinian militants, killing one and wounding the other.
 
An Israeli military statement said its aircraft targeted a rocket-launching site where militants were preparing to fire a rocket into southern Israel.
 
Later Sunday, Israeli officials said rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel without causing any casualties.
 
The incidents followed a three-day lull between the two sides, bringing some respite from a recent upsurge in cross-border fighting.
