Four air strikes blew up two caravans near the town of Khan Younis, witnesses and Hamas officials said. There were no casualties in this attack.

A fifth missile hit a cheese factory in Gaza City, setting it on fire. Hospital officials said two children were slightly wounded by flying debris. Helicopters struck twice in the central refugee camp of Nusseirat, destroying a metal foundry and no one was injured.
An Israeli military spokesman confirmed the attacks, saying they had targeted two weapons-manufacturing plants and two arms caches.
The air strikes were Israel’s response to a Palestinian short-range rocket that was fired across the border into the Jewish state on Thursday, the spokesman said. The attack, which went unclaimed by any Palestinian faction, caused no damage.
Israel has said it will hold Hamas responsible for any attacks on its cities from the Gaza Strip.
