Gaza City, January 7 (RHC)-- Israeli warplanes made several air strikes on targets in the Gaza Strip overnight Monday.  No injuries were reported but there was heavy damage to property. 

According to the Wafa News Agency, two warplanes fired missiles northwest of Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza.  The targeted structure was completely destroyed and homes were damaged. 

Hours before, other Israeli air raids caused damage to other areas in Gaza.  Israel claimed that the strikes were in response to a rocket being fired over the border near Ashkelon in southern Israel using “several balloons on a model plane,” which was intercepted and caused no damage or casualties. 

Israelis also raided two Hamas camps, one in the east of Khan Younis, and the other east of Gaza City.
