GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- An Israel helicopter fired three missiles at the disused control tower at Gaza's defunct airport Tuesday, Hamas officials said, adding that there were no casualties.

The Israeli military said the air force fired at three armed men seen in the vicinity of the airport, near southern Gaza's border with Israel.

The airport was closed down shortly after the outbreak of the Palestinian uprising against Israel in 2000.
