Sunday at dawn, April 28, 2013, the Israeli Air Force bombarded two areas west of Khan Younis, and west of Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip; damage was reported but no injuries.Media sources in Gaza reported that the army fired at least three missiles into an area believed to be a training center for a resistance group west of Khan Younis, and a land west of Rafah.
The sources added that several Israeli war jets were seen and heard flying over different parts of the coastal region throughout the night and during early dawn hours.
The attacks came shortly after the army claimed that a homemade shell was fired from Gaza into Nativot Israeli settlement, close to the border with Gaza, leading to no casualties or damage.
The Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, reported that its training center, located west of Khan Younis, was targeted by Israeli missiles leading to excessive damage but no casualties.
A second air strike followed the first this time targeting a vacant area west of Rafah, also leading to no casualties.
