Israeli airstrikes hit Gaza a fourth day

Israel launched fresh airstrikes early Monday in Gaza, targeting militant rocket launching sites across the Palestinian territory, a military statement said.

At least two militants were killed and more than 40 people injured in the latest strikes, Palestinian medical sources said.

A spokeswoman for the Israel Defense Forces confirmed the overnight strikes, saying they were "an indirect response to the firing into the Israel community in the south." The strikes targeted a weapons storage facility and five rocket launching sites in the Gaza Strip, the spokeswoman said.

At least 20 people have been killed in strikes since Friday, while at least 75 people have been wounded.
