Israeli warplanes launch airstrikes in Gaza

GAZA: Israeli warplanes carried out a third round of airstrikes in Gaza early Friday morning.

It was in response to a rocket barrage several hours earlier, capping off a night that saw multiple rounds of missile launches and reprisal raids as simmering tensions threatened to break into the open.

The Israel Defense Forces said that at around 6 a.m., fighter jets and other aircraft carried out strikes on underground infrastructure belonging to the Hamas terror group, in response to the attack earlier in the evening in which seven rockets were fired at southern Israel from the Strip.

At least six of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system. A home in the southern Israeli town of Sderot sustained considerable damage in the attack.

However, social media users have condemned the attack on Gaza. “GazaUnderAttack” has become the top trend on Twitter.
