Israeli air strikes on Gaza targets, no serious injuries



JERUSALEM- Israeli aircraft hit several targets across the Gaza Strip early Friday but there were no reports of serious injuries, Palestinian security officials and eyewitnesses said.
The strikes came a few hours after rockets fired from Gaza hit southern Israel, killing a farmworker.
The planes struck a workshop in Gaza City, three smuggling tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border and two open fields, witnesses and security officials said. Two people were said to have been slightly injured.
The Israeli military had no immediate comment.

The air raids took place shortly after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke by phone to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
He proposed unspecified "confidence-building measures" that could be carried out by Israel and the Palestinians as part of efforts to renew peacemaking efforts between the sides.
