Six injured in Israel attack on Gaza 19Nov10 November 20, 2010

Press TV -  19 November 2010
At least six Palestinians have been wounded after Israeli warplanes attacked two cities in the besieged Gaza Strip, medical sources say.

Four people, including two women, were injured after an Israeli plane targeted a home in the central town of Deir al-Balah, a Press TV correspondent reported on Friday.

Two others were injured in an Israeli airstrike in the southern town of Khan Yunis.

Israeli warplanes also attacked Gaza City earlier in the day .There were no immediate reports of casualties.

The Israeli military confirmed the attacks, saying the airstrikes were carried out after mortars were fired into southern Israel from the besieged Palestinian territory, which caused no damage.

Palestinian fighters, however, say that the mortar attacks were in response to Israel’s targeted assassinations across Gaza.

On Wednesday, two senior members of the Army of Islam –Mohammed Yassin and his brother Islam — were killed in an Israeli air raid in Gaza City. Three others were also wounded in the attack.

Earlier in the month, the Israeli military, in a joint operation with Israel’s internal security service Shin Bet, targeted and killed Mohammed Jamal al-Nimnim, another senior member of the Army of Islam.

Israeli officials claim they ordered his assassination as they had received reports that Nimnim was planning a number of attacks against American and Israeli targets in the Sinai Peninsula.
