GAZA CITY – Israeli warplanes launched a series of airstrikes on the Gaza Strip overnight Saturday, injuring seven people, medics said.

A missile struck a home in the Nuseirat refugee camp, central Gaza, wounding seven people. The victims, which included four children, were taken to hospital for treatment, medical spokesman Adham Abu Salmiya said. 

The escalation came after the Friday morning infiltration that was executed by Ahmed Nasser who was killed by Israeli soldiers. An Israeli airstrike later that day at Palestinians on a motorcycle east of Khan Yunis resulted in the death of a member of the Popular Resistance Committees, who according to the army was part of a squad that had fired a rocket at Israeli soldiers.
