Israeli airstrikes hit four targets in Gaza overnight, wounding four people, three of them children, medical and security sources said Thursday, as violence surged on the border.The Israeli army said that a major target of the strikes was suspected infiltration tunnels under the border like those whose destruction it cited as one of the principal achievements of the 2014 conflict.Gaza has been devastated by three conflicts between Israel and its Hamas rulers and other Palestinian factions since 2008, and reconstruction has been painstakingly slow amid an Israeli blockade on all imports that could have military purposes.Hamas's armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, said it was ready to respond to Israeli strikes.The border region has remained relatively quiet since the 2014 conflict, despite allegations by the army that Hamas is building new tunnels from the enclave that could reach into Israel.
