Gaza health officials said three Palestinians were wounded in one of the Israeli strikes.

A barrage of around 50 rockets was sacked at Israel from the Gaza Strip on Saturday and dozens were intercepted by air defences, the Israeli army said.

The Israeli military says the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group instigated the current round of Gaza-Israel violence.

Hamas, the group that rules the Palestinian enclave, said two members of its armed wing had been killed and three wounded when Israel bombed one of its positions in central Gaza.

Hamas did not immediately comment on the affiliation of the Palestinians killed but pledged to respond to what it called an "Israeli aggression". More than 70 Israelis and one foreign national were also killed.

Israel launched airstrikes Friday after two Israeli soldiers were wounded by sniper fire along the Gaza border.

The Israeli Defence Force said in a statement today that 10 sites belonging to the territory's Hamas rulers and the smaller Islamic Jihad group were hit by air strikes.

In recent days, Hamas accused Israel of reneging on its pledges as militants began to fire rockets into Israel.
