The raids struck targets near Rafah and north of Khan Yunis, near the border with Egypt, as well as targets near Zeitoun, east of Gaza City, and the Deir al-Balah refugee camp in the centre of the territory.

An Israeli military spokeswoman neither confirmed nor denied the raids.

Two Israeli soldiers were slightly wounded on Tuesday by mortar shells fired by Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip, the military said.

On Monday an Islamic Jihad militant was killed and an Israeli soldier wounded in an exchange of fire.
