IDF Denies Fatal Gaza Strikes

The Israel Defense Forces denied, Friday, claims by Gaza sources that an Israeli air strike resulted in the death of two people in northern Gaza during the morning visit by Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil, according an IDF spokesman quoted by Agence France Presse. The spokesman said, "We have not attacked in the past two hours, in addition there have been over 60 rocket launches in the same period of time."

The Hamas terror group's Izz Ad-Din Al-Kassam Brigades admitted having fired more than 40 rockets.
