[Monday at dawn, June 2, 2014] The Israeli Air Force carried out two air strikes targeting two centers run by the al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas movement, in Gaza city and in Khan Younis.Local sources said the first strike targeted the Abu Jarad site, causing fires and excessive property damage. Firefighters rushed to the scene and contained the fire; no injuries were reported.

The second attack targeted a site known as Hitteen, northwest of Khan Younis city, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The bombardment led to fire in a number of structures, and in nearby hothouses used by Palestinian farmers.

An Israeli military spokesperson claimed the two attacks came in retaliation to a number of homemade shells fired from Gaza into nearby Israeli settlements.

The spokesperson did not report any injuries or damage.
