In the Gaza Strip, thousands of Palestinians marched in funerals Saturday for two Hamas members who were killed Friday when Israeli warplanes dropped bombs on several buildings. The Palestinian Health Ministry said at least 25 others were injured in the airstrikes, including six children. Reuters video of the aftermath showed a bloodied baby crying while being treated in a Gaza hospital. Israel’s assault came after Palestinians fired at least two rockets into southern Israel. The rockets did not cause any injuries or damage. Elsewhere, Israel said it had destroyed a partially constructed tunnel connecting the Gaza Strip to Israeli territory.
