Israeli Aircraft Strike Gaza

The Israeli military says it has carried out three air strikes on Gaza following rocket attacks by Palestinian militants.

Gaza officials say no injuries were reported from the strikes.

The Israeli army says two of the strikes hit smuggling tunnels on the territory's border with Egypt. Aircraft also struck a building allegedly used by militants to store arms.

Palestinian militants fired two rockets into Israel Sunday causing no injuries.

Israel launched a three-week offensive in late December against the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip. The offensive was in response to continuing rocket attacks from Gaza.

Both Hamas and Israel declared unilateral cease-fires in January, but the violence continues almost daily.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP and AP.
