Israel has launched fresh airstrikes in the Gaza Strip in response to rocket fire from the enclave, with Hamas saying two of its gunmen have been killed in the bombings.

Militants fired at least three rockets toward Israeli towns from the Hamas- controlled strip on Friday, which was declared a ‘day of rage’ by Palestinian factions protesting US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

‘IAF (Israeli Air Force) aircraft targeted four facilities belonging to the Hamas terror organisation in the Gaza Strip: Two weapons manufacturing sites, a weapons warehouse, a military compound,’ the Israeli military said in a statement on Saturday.

A Hamas source confirmed the two men killed in the strikes belonged to the group, which has urged Palestinians to keep up confrontation with Israeli forces.
