Several injured as Israeli planes bomb Gaza Strip

Several Palestinians have been injured as Israeli aircraft bomb two sites in southern Gaza Strip early Friday, the army and witnesses said.

The Israeli military said it blew up a metal workshop in Khan Yunis in the early hours of Friday, injuring several people.

The condition of the injured was not immediately clear, witnesses said.

Minutes later, a second strike targeted a tunnel in the border town of Rafah, the Israeli military said.

The army claims that the two strikes were in retaliation to a Thursday rocket attack that hit an empty workshop on a kibbutz in southern Israel, but caused no casualties.

The attacks come as US Vice President Joe Biden is wrapping up a 5-day visit to the region.
