Israeli Airstrikes Hit Gaza Strip After Palestinian Rocket Fire

HeadlineApr 21, 2022

Israeli warplanes bombed the Gaza Strip overnight, targeting what Israel said was an underground weapons factory. It was the second night of airstrikes on the besieged Palestinian territory this week. The assault came after Palestinian militants in Gaza launched a barrage of rockets at southern Israel. Many of them appeared to be intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system, though one rocket caused slight damage to a home in the Israeli city of Sderot.
