Israeli Air Strike

An Israeli air strike on Gaza has killed one Palestinian and injured two, including a child. The strike was in response to a rocket fired into Israel the day before. The attack targeted a motorcycle on a busy street in the town of Jabaliya. Israel claims it was targeting two "terror operatives."

The rocket attack on Friday was fired by Salafi Islamists and landed in the courtyard of a residential building. No one was injured.

There has been a new round of rocket attacks from Palestine into Israel recently in response to an Israeli attack on a southern Gaza city called Rafah.
