IMEMC, 2/11/14 – The Israeli air force fired several missiles into two areas in the besieged Gaza Strip, causing property damage but no casualties, the Palestine News Network (PNN) has reported.

The Israeli radio said the Air Force fired four missiles into the training center, used by fighter of the al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas movement, near the Nusseirat refugee camp, causing excessive damage.

The radio quoted an army official stating that Hamas is responsible for the escalation “for not preventing the firing of homemade shells into adjacent Israeli areas”.
