Israeli aircraft fired missiles at two targets in the Gaza Strip early Saturday, destroying one car but causing no injuries, Palestinian security officials said. A helicopter attacked the car in the central town of Dir al-Balah shortly after midnight. Security officials said two men inside the vehicle managed to escape before the missile ripped through the car. There was no word on the identities of the two men. Minutes later, an Israeli F-16 fired a missile at an empty field in northern Gaza. In the past week, the IDF has been targeting terrorists involved in the launching of Kassam rockets into southern Israel. The airstrikes have also targeted fields used as launching areas by the terror organizations. The IDF said it had no knowledge of the incidents.
