Officials in Gaza have retrieved the bodies of two Palestinians killed in Israeli air raids on the Gaza Strip, the Associated Press news agency has reported.
An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed the overnight strikes targeting what they said were two smuggling tunnels on the Rafah border near Egypt, and an alleged weapons storage facility on the northern Gaza border.
“Our planes attacked an armoury in the north of the Gaza Strip and two tunnels used for gunrunning in the south” from Egypt, the spokesman said on Friday.
He said the raids came in retaliation for over 10 mortar shells fired from Gaza into Israel on Thursday, seven of which landed in Israel causing no injuries.
