Israel hits Gaza targets

Israeli attack helicopters fired at least 10 missiles at a metal foundry and other targets around Gaza City early on Monday, Palestinian witnesses said.

    Ten people were killed in the Ashdod attacks

    It was not known what other targets were hit and there were

    no immediate reports of casualties in the early morning air

    strikes.

    But much of northern Gaza was plunged into darkness as the missiles knocked out electricity supplies.

    The strikes came hours after two Gaza human bombers killed

    10 people at Israel's port of Ashdod.

    The Israeli military, which has used its helicopter fleet to

    track and kill scores of resistance fighters

     waging a

    Palestinian uprising in the West Bank and Gaza

    Strip, did not immediately comment.

    But Israeli security sources said Prime Minister Ariel

    Sharon had convened a meeting late on Sunday night to decide on

    retaliation for the Ashdod attack.

    Sunday's attack was jointly claimed by

    Hamas and al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, an armed wing of Palestinian

    President Yasir Arafat's Fatah movement.
