Israeli warplanes bomb Gaza security target: Hamas

GAZA (Reuters) - Israeli warplanes fired two missiles at a security compound in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Wednesday, Hamas officials said.

Ambulances raced to the scene near Gaza City as plumes of smoke billowed overhead, but it was not clear whether the attack caused any casualties.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment, but said shortly beforehand that a rocket had been fired from Gaza at Israel, apparently causing no casualties.
