An Israeli helicopter fired at least three missiles into the southern
Gaza Strip town of Rafah on Wednesday, killing at least four people, Palestinian officials said.

Hamas said the missiles struck one of its military buildings in the town. The Israeli army confirmed its aircraft fired on southern Gaza, but did not give details. 


Palestinian officials said the strike killed at least four people and injured 14 others, including one critically. Palestinian rescue officials said several people were buried under rubble after the strike.

Israel's missile strike added another layer of complexity to Gaza and raised the specter of a large-scale Israeli invasion.


Palestinian medical officials said four Hamas gunmen were killed and 30 others wounded. In a display of unity, Hamas and Fatah men worked together to evacuate the casualties.
