Israel strikes 10 militant sites in Gaza Strip, arrests Palestinian in West Bank

The Israeli military says it has carried out airstrikes on 10 militant sites in the Gaza Strip, including rocket launchers and a weapons manufacturing site.

The airstrikes early Sunday come following at least 29 other rockets and mortars fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel over the weekend.

Two of those rockets were aimed at Beersheba, a southern city deeper into Israel than any other attack in the current round of violence. The military says its "Iron Dome" defense system intercepted the two rockets.

Also Sunday, the army arrested a Palestinian in the West Bank city of Hebron. His family identified him as Hossam Dufesh. The army would not elaborate on the arrest. Israeli forces have concentrated its search for the killers of three Israeli teens on the Hebron area.
