Gaza -- Israeli tank fire struck a house in the Gaza Strip Tuesday, injuring at least five people, Palestinian medics said.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the report, but said four rockets had been fired at Israel during the day from the enclave, which is ruled by the Islamist Hamas group. Israel launched a series of air strikes in Gaza Monday, wounding 19 people, following a barrage of mortar and rocket fire.
