GAZA, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) — Israeli warplanes attacked targets near Egypt's borders in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah, Palestinian witnesses and security sources said early Wednesday.

Minutes before midnight, F-16 jets dropped a bomb on a smuggling tunnel beneath the borders, used by Palestinians to bring in various goods into the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip, witnesses said.

Shortly afterwards, the planes fired three missiles at destroyed installations that once served as Gaza’s airport in southeastern Rafah, security sources added.
