Israeli gunboats 'shell Gaza beach'
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli gunboats shelled a beach in northern Gaza late Thursday night, witnesses said.
The shelling caused two explosions but not injuries were reported, a Ma'an correspondent said.
An Israeli military spokeswoman was not immediately familiar with the incident.
The military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said it fired four rockets from Gaza on Friday.
The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades said it launched two rockets toward Ashkelon, one at the Sufa crossing area and another at Meftahim, east of Khan Younis.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said two rockets landed in southern Israel, causing no injuries.
