Aircraft hits Hamas targets in Gaza


Israeli aircraft struck a series of targets in the Gaza Strip early Monday while Palestinia­n militants launched rockets into Israel in the third consecutiv­e night of fighting between the sides. The violence took place shortly before Israel's prime minister, Naftali Bennett, was heading to Egypt for a visit expected to focus on Egyptian efforts to broker a long-term truce between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers in the wake of an 11-day war last May. Those efforts appear to have come to a standstill in recent weeks. Tensions have further risen after last week's escape from an Israeli prison by six Palestinia­n inmates.
