Israeli strikes kill at least 10 in Gaza, Palestinian militants respond with rocket fire


TEL AVIV — Israel carried out airstrikes in Gaza on Friday that killed at least 10 people and militants in the Palestinian territory retaliated by launching dozens of rockets, in the deadliest escalation of violence since an 11-day conflict Last year.

The Israeli military said it launched an air campaign against what it said were Palestinian Islamic Jihad sites and operatives across Gaza, after the Iran-backed militant group threatened to attack Israel for the arrest of one of its leading members in the occupied West Bank. Israeli airstrikes killed at least 10 Palestinians, including a 5-year-old girl, and injured at least 75, according to Gaza’s health ministry. Israel did not comment on civilian casualties.
