An Israeli helicopter has fired a missile at a Gaza Strip workshop which the army said was used by Palestinian resistance fighters to store munitions.

    The helicopter attack caused no casualties, local medics said

    The attack

    destroyed the workshop but caused no casualties.

    Palestinian witnesses said on Thursday that the target was a basement

    carpentry shop in a Rafah refugee camp on Gaza's flashpoint border

    with Egypt.

    Local medics confirmed no one was hurt.

    An Israeli army spokeswoman said the workshop contained

    mortar bombs stowed away by Islamic group Hamas, which has 

    spearheaded a four-year-old Palestinian uprising in Gaza and

    the West Bank.

    However, it was not possible to confirm the report.

    The air strike came hours after a Hamas mortar barrage

    wounded seven Israeli soldiers in central Gaza.
