Ashraf al-Qedra, Gaza health ministry spokesman, told reporters that two security men were lightly injured by the shrapnel of an Israeli missile which was fired on Friday night at an area east of Nuseirat refugee camp in central part of the coastal enclave, Xinhua reported.

The Israeli air strike came shortly after Gaza militants fired two rockets from central Gaza Strip into southern Israel. No damages or injuries were reported, according to Israel Public Radio.

The Israeli military confirmed the air strike in a statement, saying that the rocket, which targeted civilians in southern Israel, landed in an open area, causing no injuries.

The statement said the air attack was carried out against a “Hamas terror infrastructure” in Gaza.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, Israel’s military spokesman, added that since the beginning of August multiple rockets have been fired towards southern Israel, most falling short in the Gaza Strip, accusing terrorists of using the Strip as a launch pad for rocket attacks, and warning that Hamas must fulfill its responsibilities or face the consequences.

A tough new warning from Israel to Iran is raising fears of war in the Middle East.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel is prepared to confront Iranian “aggression” sooner rather than later.

Speaking at the weekly Cabinet meeting in Jerusalem, Netanyahu accused Iran of transferring advanced weapons to neighboring Syria, including missiles and anti-aircraft batteries it intends to use against Israel.

“We do not want an escalation,” Netanyahu said, “but we are prepared for any scenario.”

The tough rhetoric follows a presentation on national TV a week ago, in which Netanyahu exposed what he said were tens thousands of documents proving that Iran had a secret nuclear weapons program which could be quickly revived at any time.

The files, which were seized in Tehran by Israeli intelligence, could reinforce threats by U.S. President Donald Trump to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal by May 12. The three European countries that signed the agreement, Britain, France and Germany, have tried to persuade Trump not to withdraw.

Netanyahu will visit Moscow on Wednesday to discuss the situation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the main power broker in Syria. Putin will no doubt urge Netanyahu to act with restraint.

But Netanyahu told the Cabinet that Israel must learn from history. He said nations that were not prepared to take timely action against aggression paid a much higher price later on. (VOA)
