Israeli aircraft struck two targets in the Gaza Strip early on Wednesday, wounding at least two men, Palestinian medical sources said.

They said that one man was seriously injured and another moderately hurt in a strike on a Palestinian security facility in the north of the strip. Another raid hit a poultry farm in Rafah, in the south, they said.

The Israeli military said the targets were "weapons storage facilities" and added that a rocket fired by militants in Gaza had landed in southern Israel several hours earlier, causing no casualties.

Since the start of the year, Palestinian militants have fired more than 270 rockets at southern Israel, according to the Israeli army.

Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, maintains a tacit truce with Israel, but other Palestinian groups in the territory occasionally fire rockets across the border.

Oddly the Operation Orchard carried out by the IDF on the nuclear reactor near Deir ez Zur in 2007, was also masquerading as a poultry farm facility.
