Israel Launches Missile Strikes Against Hamas

Israel launches helicopter missile strikes against vehicles suspected of transporting members of Hamas. The strikes occurred in both the West Bank and Gaza Strip and killed at least four people.

Overnight, Israeli helicopters fired missiles at five Palestinian targets in Gaza. The strikes came after a 22-year-old Israeli woman was killed in a rocket attack on an Israeli village. That rocket fire sparked a gun battle Friday between Hamas militants and Palestinian police; two Palestinians reportedly died.
