The IAF struck a weapons warehouse west of Khan Yunis, in the southern Gaza Strip overnight Tuesday. IDF officials said that prior to the strike, residents of the region were urged to evacuate all homes in which weapons were being stored. Earlier Tuesday night, five people were wounded in an IAF airstrike in northern Gaza, Palestinian sources reported. The IDF confirmed that IAF aircraft had bombed a vehicle carrying Islamic Jihad operatives in the town of Beit Hanun. After the initial explosion, several additional blasts were heard due to the number of weapons and explosives carried in the car. The IDF said the terrorists were on their way to launch rockets at Israeli communities in the western Negev. According to Palestinian sources, two cars were hit in the strike and the five casualties were Fatah and Islamic Jihad operatives.
