GAZA, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- A Palestinian man was killed and two others wounded Saturday as Israeli warplanes pounded militants' facilities in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip in response to earlier rocket fire.
Ashraf al-Qedra, spokesman of the health ministry in Gaza told reporters that Ahmed al-Shehri, 27, was killed and two others injured in the Israeli airstrikes on western Khan Younis in southern Gaza Strip.
Al-Qedra said that the three victims were civilians.
An Israeli army spokesman said in a statement Israeli air forces launched a round of air strikes on military facilities and posts in the Gaza Strip, according to local media.
Israel Defense Forces said the strikes came "in response to 10 rockets fired from Gaza" late Friday at southern Isreal.
No one had claimed responsibility for the rocket fire by Friday evening. But Israel blames Hamas for any fire from Gaza.
Residents in Gaza City said they heard buzzing sounds of drones and fighting warplanes hovering over the region, adding that sounds of explosions could also be heard.
The Israel army said "we target terror" and their airstrikes hit military compounds affiliated with Gaza's Hamas rulers. The targets included weapons manufacturing and storage sites, a naval force and training compounds.
