Israeli warplanes early Tuesday raided the Gaza Strip, witnesses said.

The air raid targeted a tunnel dug under the border between the south of the Strip and Egypt, near Rafah, the Palestinian witnesses said.

There were no casualties reported in the raid.

Two explosions also shook Gaza City. The source of the blasts was not immediately clear.

An Israeli spokeswoman questioned by AFP declined to confirm or deny the air raid.

A woman was slightly wounded when a rocket fired from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip crashed into southern Israel late on Monday, an army spokeswoman said earlier.
