Israel strikes Gaza, Claims Hits on 2 Rocket Launchers

Last Monday, Israel launched an air strike and hit two hidden Gaza missile launchers. Israel Defense Forces stated that they were direct hits. A training camp west of Gaza City was also hit. No injuries were reported.

This ties into our standards through our history standard that says to describe how land and religion are reasons for continuing conflicts in the Middle East. The Palestinian Arabs and Israeli Jews have been fighting over Israel/Palestine for many years. They both have solid reasons to why the land is theirs.
