The Israeli army on Tuesday bombed a number of targets in the blockaded Gaza strip after rockets were fired from the Palestinian territory, according to the Israeli army. Israel says Islamic Jihad is affiliated with Hamas.
Conricus said the mortars probably were fired in retaliation for Israel's destruction of an attack tunnel that snaked from Gaza into Israel that the Islamic Jihad militant group was building.
The Gaza Health Ministry said that at least three Palestinians were injured in the strikes.
