Israel air strikes injure 2 Palestinians [ CONTINUOUS UPDATES ]

PressTV – Mon Jan 10, 2011 6:29AM

Israeli warplanes have launched twin air strikes on the Gaza Strip, leaving two Palestinians injured, Press TV has learned.

The Israeli army said in a statement that the attack has been a response to a mortar attack by Palestinian fighters that lightly wounded two men on Sunday.

The attack came after Hamas called on its armed groups to abide by an unofficial ceasefire and stop firing rockets and mortars at Israel, Jerusalem Post reported Monday.

Ayman Taha, a Hamas official, said that the movement avoids providing Israel with an excuse to “wage a new war against the Gaza Strip.”

The official, however, said Hamas reserved the right to “respond to Israeli crimes, but only within the frame of national consensus.”

Israel launched a devastating war on the Gaza Strip in December 2008, leaving 1,400 Palestinians dead and thousands of others displaced.

The Israeli military, however, launch attacks on the Palestinian territories on a regular basis. There has been a surge of violence along the Gaza border during this month.
