Israeli airstrikes hit Hamas facilities in response to bombing attack

Rafah border

Israeli sources said that israeli jets bombed six Hamas positions in Gaza and Palestinian factions fired tow rocket into Israel at night.

In August 2015, Hamas captured a dolphin equipped with spying devices, including cameras, off the shore of the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian officials said three Hamas training camps and one belonging to a smaller group had been struck but no-one was injured.

Four Israeli soldiers on patrol were wounded on Saturday when an explosive device went off near southern Israel's border with Gaza, according to the Israeli military, APA reports quoting Anadolu agency.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a security conference in Munich called the Gaza border incident "very serious" and pledged to "respond appropriately".

'Collapse in home-ownership among young adults since mid-1990s'
House prices have increased seven times faster in real terms than the average annual salary of a young worker. The falls in homeownership have been sharpest for young adults with middle incomes.

The Hamas is accountable for this incident and its consequences, as well as everything happening in and from the Gaza Strip, above and below ground, said the Israeli army.

"We've been speaking about these staged riots for a long time", Colonel Conricus said.

But he insisted that "from our point of view Hamas is responsible" and said the explosive had been planted during a protest arranged by the group on Friday. An attempt at reconciliation between the two last fall has since bogged down, and a standoff over salaries and revenue has sent the territory's economy into free-fall, with many expecting a war with Israel as a result.

Saturday's incident comes amid concern over the humanitarian situation in Gaza, which has for years been under Egyptian and Israeli blockade.

He said the situation in Gaza could cause an outbreak of conflict between Hamas and Israel, particularly as demonstrations along the border fence have grown in recent weeks.
