Israeli jets bomb Gaza, injures a baby

Israeli warplanes bombed at least four targets in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, wounding a seven-month-old girl and one Palestinian man, medics in the coastal territory said.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment.

Medics said a strike launched on a Hamas national guard post in Rafah, a town near Gaza's border with Egypt, hit near a home and the baby was wounded in the head by shrapnel. The injury was not listed as serious and was described as slight.

A Palestinian man, described as a civilian, was wounded moderately in an earlier strike in Gaza, the medics said.

Palestinian medics also reported two earlier Israeli air strikes before dawn on Saturday. There were no injuries.

Also on Saturday, a Palestinian man was shot and wounded in the leg as he collected gravel near the border fence in the northern Gaza Strip, Palestinian medics said.

Palestinians in Gaza frequently forage through the rubble along the territory's border with Israel, seeking construction materials which are otherwise in short supply because of an Israeli-imposed blockade.
