Israel hits targets in Gaza in 3rd night of fighting

Israeli aircraft hit targets in Gaza on Monday in response to continuing rocket fire out of Hamas-controlled Gaza, in exchanges that have continued since Friday.

Israel reported three separate rocket launches from Gaza late Sunday and early Monday, claiming at least two of them were intercepted by its Iron Dome Aerial Defense System. In a statement on Twitter, the Israeli Defence Force claimed to have "struck 4 Hamas compounds used for military training, a weapons workshop & an entrance to an underground terrorist tunnel."

The current flare-up followed last week's prison break by six Palestinian inmates as well as a lack of progress in the peace talks.
