Israeli jets hit Gaza after Palestinian rocket attacks

Skirmishes have broken out over the past day between militants in Palestine and the Israeli Defense Forces.  BBC News reports on the latest fighting that Palestinian witnesses state began yesterday when an Israeli tank entered northern Gaza.  Israel states the tank was pursuing militants planting explosives along the border fence.  Late Wednesday, two rockets were fired from Gaza hitting a house in the Israeli city of Beersheba.  No one was injured in this attack.  Israel responded overnight with air strikes on four Hamas training facilities, no casualties were reported.  It is up in the air as to whether more fighting will continue.  Hopefully this flare up will die down with what appears to be very limited causalities.


Israeli tanks take part in fatal Gaza Strip raid

BBC News reports on an Israeli incursion into Palestinian territory.   Seven Israeli tanks participated in the raid which sparked a shootout with Palestinian militants that resulted in one Palestinian death and two injuries.  This raid may be in response to mortars fired from Gaza into Israel early Tuesday morning.
