Nov. 2 (UPI) -- The Israeli military launched airstrikes Saturday on targets in Gaza, killing one man, after it said rockets shot from the Palestinian territory struck Israel.
The Hamas-run health ministry said the strikes killed a 27-year-old Palestinian man and injured two others.
Israel Defense Forces said it carried out the attack after 10 rockets were fired from Gaza toward Israel, hitting one residence in Sderot. The military said Israel's Iron Dome System intercepted eight of the rockets.
Hamas condemned Israel for the strikes, accusing the military of escalating tensions.
"Israel's bombing and its targeting of resistance facilities and our people in Gaza is a continuation of Israel's criminal record," spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said, adding that the attack was "a dangerous escalation against innocent civilians, which Israel must be held responsible for."
"All those crimes will never break our people's resilience."
