Israel says planes bombed Gaza targets

Israeli soldiers keep watch over the Israel-Gaza Strip Border, where almost 60 Palestinians were shot and killed and 1360 injured this week.

Jerusalem: The Israeli military says it has carried out air strikes on militant sites in Gaza overnight on Wednesday in response to machine gun fire that hit a building in the Israeli city of Sderot.

The army said on Thursday that planes bombarded a military compound and a weapons production facility in the northern Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian health ministry said a man was moderately wounded by shrapnel, but didn't say whether he was inside a militant site or nearby.

The air strikes came hours after Israeli forces came under fire from the Palestinian territory. The military said no troops were wounded in Wednesday's exchange.

Israeli fire killed nearly 60 Palestinians on Monday during a protest along the Gaza border. A senior Hamas official said 50 of those killed were members of the militant group.
