ISRAEL LAUNCHES AIRSTRIKE ON GAZA IN RESPONSE TO MISSILE LAUNCH SEVERAL HOURS AGO, FIRST TIME SINCE OPERATION PILLAR OF DEFENSE


Israeli planes carried out bombing sorties over the Gaza Strip late Tuesday night, responding to rocket attacks out of the Palestinian enclave earlier in the day.

The air force bombing was the first Israeli attack on Gaza since an informal cease-fire was signed between Jerusalem and the Strip’s Hamas rulers in November following an eight-day mini-war to stem rocket fire dubbed Pillar of Defense.
