Israel has carried out more air strikes on the Gaza Strip, following dozens of rockets fired by the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas.

At least 15 Palestinians, including two women and a child, were reportedly hurt in the strikes.

Israeli Army spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner, said that Israel had no option but to launch strikes as rockets were targeting Israel towns.
