    The Israeli military said ground forces struck a rocket squad about to fire at Israeli towns.

     

    Al-Aqsa said it fired 10 rockets on Thursday by midday.

     

    Israeli aircraft later struck an electricity transformer, causing no casualties. But power was knocked out in several homes, according to Said Hamad of the Beit Hanoun town council.
