Israel carries out new air strikes in Gaza despite ceasefire
Israeli aircraft fired several missiles in the Gaza Strip on Friday.

No injuries were reported.

An Israeli military spokesman confirmed the air strikes but gave no further details.

Hamas and Israel declared separate ceasefires on Jan. 18 but acts of Israeli air attacks and Palestinian responses have continued.

Earlier, two rockets fired from northern Gaza landed in Israel, the Israeli military said.

Israel launched on Dec. 27 a massive offensive in Gaza, killing more than 1300 Palestinians, a third of them children, and wounded at least 5300. Ten Israeli soldiers and three civilians were killed in the Gaza campaign.

Israel often targets the tunnels under the Gaza Strip's border with Egypt.

Gazans live under heavy Israel siege for a long time and Egypt still insists on not to opening the only Gaza border crossing in a move condemned by Muslims around the world in protests, leaving Gazans desperate to digging tunnels underground and risking their lives.
