Israeli airstrikes hit Gaza

Israel conducted two airstrikes inside Gaza on Tuesday night, security sources in Gaza told CNN. Israel Defense Forces confirmed the strikes, saying they were launched in retaliation for rocket attacks.

The Gaza sources told CNN this was the first Israeli airstrike there since a truce that ended eight days of fighting between the Israelis and Hamas last November.

Medical sources said there were no initial reports of casualties.

    Palestinians should have learned by now. Decades of oppression,brutal occupation,genocide, annexation of their land and homes should have turned them catatonic.
