Israel said it launched a series of airstrikes against targets in the Gaza Strip early Tuesday. The military said the strikes hit 34 targets and injured four Palestinians across the Hamas-controlled territory.
It also said approximately six rockets hit Israel, including two that struck an area north of the city of Sderot. No damage or injuries have yet been reported.
The strikes came after three Jewish teens kidnapped in the West Bank were discovered dead in a shallow grave Monday. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "all signs" indicate the remains belong to Israeli-born American citizen Naftali Fraenkel, 16, Eyal Yifrach, 16, and Gilad Shaar, 19 — who vanished on June 12.
