Islam Times - Israeli warplanes have fired two missiles at a site on the outskirts of the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah, causing serious damage to a cement factory.

Ambulances and firefighters rushed to the scene, but no injuries were reported.

Israeli military sources confirmed the strikes and claimed that the target was a weapons factory.

More than 1,400 Palestinians were killed during Israel’s December 2008-January 2009 war on the people of the Gaza Strip.

The Gaza Strip is the world’s largest open-air prison, with Tel Aviv exercising full control over the airspace, territorial waters, and border crossings of the blockaded territory.
