GAZA CITY Hamas has launched a missile barrage against Israel in wake of the assassination of a movement commander.

Hamas gunners fired eight Kassam-class short-range missiles toward Israel on Sunday. Two of the missiles landed in the western Negev city of Sderot. The others landed in the surrounding area. Nobody was injured.

The Hamas missile barrage was the largest in months and came in wake of the Israeli killing of a Hamas commander. Tariq Abu Al Hussein, 39, was killed in an Israeli military operation in a refugee camp outside the southern Gaza town of Rafah. Abu Al Hussein was believed connected to the operation of tunnels from the Gaza Strip to Egypt.

On Monday, Israeli combat aircraft and helicopters carried out three attacks on Islamic insurgency strongholds in Gaza City. Three Palestinians were killed and about 20 were injured. The Israeli targets comprised a suspected Kassam missile factory, a Kassam warehouse and a car that contained two Hamas insurgents.
