Israel hits Gaza for first time since truce

By Agencies in Gaza, Palestinian Territories ( China Daily ) Updated: 2014-12-22 07:47:19

Israeli aircraft attacked Gaza on Saturday for the first time since an August truce ended a 50-day conflict after a rocket hit the Jewish state, witnesses and the army said.

A Palestinian Health Ministry spokesman in Gaza said no one was injured in the airstrike. The attack came just hours after the rocket hit an open field in southern Israel on Friday without causing casualties or damage.

It was the third time a rocket fired from the Palestinian enclave landed within Israel since the Aug 26 truce between Israel and Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, the territory's de facto ruler.
