Israeli Air Raids on Gaza after Militant Attack

Israel carried out two air raids on the Gaza Strip early Wednesday without causing any casualties, Palestinian security officials said.

The attacks came after Palestinian militants fired two projectiles into southern Israel from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Tuesday.

It was not immediately clear if they were mortars or rockets, but the projectiles "landed in an open area without causing damage or injuries," an Israeli military spokeswoman said.

According to an army count, Palestinian militants have fired more than 190 rockets or mortar rounds at Israel from the coastal strip since the start of this year.
