The Israeli military had no immediate comment.

The airstrike Thursday morning followed a series of air attacks earlier in the day.

The airstrikes have come in response to a barrage of rockets and mortar shells fired from Gaza on southern Israel.

In recent days violence has escalated to the gravest level seen in the area since Israel went to war in the Palestinian coastal territory two years ago.
