JERUSALEM (AFP) –Israeli jets pounded Hamas positions in Gaza overnight after Palestinians staged a cross-border raid into southern Israel, the military said yesterday. A Palestinian security source in the coastal enclave said the planes hit a base of Hama’s armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, causing damage but no injuries. The strike on the Strip’s Islamist rulers came after four Palestinians ‘carrying bottles with flammable material’ breached Gaza’s border fence on Saturday evening. The group attempted to torch heavy equipment used for work on the frontier barrier. The machinery was damaged but did not catch fire, and the attackers fled back into Gaza. No casualties were reported.
