GAZA, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Israeli war planes bombed a Hamas Islamist training camp in the Gaza Strip before dawn on Thursday following a rocket launching from the enclave a day earlier, Israeli military sources and Hamas officials said.
There were no casualties in the two raids carried out near Gaza City shortly after midnight, Hamas said.
The strike came hours after Israel said a rocket fired from the coastal territory struck in an open area in its south, also causing no casualties.
Israel often retaliates for rockets fired by Gaza militants with air strikes, frequently targeting tunnels it says are used for weapons smuggling and training facilities for militants.
An Israeli military statement said more than 160 rockets and mortars have been fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel in 2010. (Reporting by Nidal al-Mughrabi; Writing by Allyn Fisher-Ilan; Editing by David Stamp)
