Israeli airstrikes again routine for Gaza's people in aftermath of offensive

Israeli airstrikes again routine for Gaza's people in aftermath of offensive

Israeli planes attacked purported smuggling tunnels in Gaza in what it said was retaliation for earlier rocket launches at the south of the country from the coastal strip, as a stable truce between the two sides remained elusive.

Palestinian militants fired two rockets early in the day and Israeli aircraft struck seven tunnels in the southern Gaza town of Rafah several hours later in response, the Israeli military said.

Palestinians purportedly working in tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border evacuated before the strike after they saw Egyptian troops across the border pull back, presumably after they were warned by Israel, according to Hamas security officials.

There were no injuries reported in either rocket attack or airstrike.

The rocket attacks and airstrikes have become routine in the aftermath of Israel's devastating three-week Gaza offensive.
