Israel strikes Gaza City security building after attacks
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) -- An Israeli F-16 bombed a Palestinian security installation Wednesday, witnesses said, hours after Palestinian militants launched deadly attacks on Jewish settlers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
As four fighter planes buzzed overhead, there was a large explosion at the security building just before 10 p.m., and white smoke filled the air. Palestinian security workers ran from nearby buildings, filling the streets.
No injuries were immediately reported.
Electricity in Gaza City had been cut off earlier to darken the area in anticipation of Israeli strikes. Witnesses also reported seeing Israeli warplanes in the skies over the West Bank.
The security building was near one of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's compounds, but he was in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
The streets nearby were chaotic after the attack, with people running from a market hundreds of yards away, where many had been shopping for the coming feast to mark the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
