The Israeli strikes are in retaliation for yesterday's suicide bombing in Netanya.
The Islamic militant group Hamas claimed responsibility for the bombing, saying it was the seventh of 10 planned blasts.
Yesterday marked the first time since the 1967 Mideast war that Israel used fighter planes against targets in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Ten Palestinians and six Israelis were killed on Friday in one of the deadliest days in eight months of fighting.

The F-B-I came under fire this week for with-holding evidence from Timothy McVeigh's attorneys - and now it appears they've done it again.
Yesterday - former Christiansburg Attorney Keith Neely got another 200 pages of documents from the F-B-I.


And it comes long after the court- ordered deadline for the government to hand over the evidence used to convict Neely of drug trafficking and money laundering.

A lawyer from the F-B-I's Office of General Counsel appeared before the judge yesterday, explaining that a lot of the information was in the F-B-I's Richmond field office.
[SUPER=03-Washington, DC/Wednesday]

The Judge said -quote- the explaination has a familiar ring to it - citing F-B-I Director Louis Freeh's testimony on Capitol Hill this week. Freeh told Congress the Bureau had failed to turn over material to McVeigh's lawyers, because the Field Offices hadn't sent it in to Headquarters.
U-S Attorney Ruth Plagenhoef concedes that makes Neely's case "very timely," but she points out the two cases are unrelated.

F-B-I Director Louis Freeh (loo-ee free) plans to leave the agency next month, and the Bush administration is casting a wide net for his successor.
Congressman David Obey, who voiced sharp criticism during Freeh's appearance on Capitol Hill this week, says the next director must have the management skills needed to shape up an agency that he says is bad in need of reform. Obey says Freeh should give the president a list of what needs to be done to overcome the agency's ''chronic, consistent failures.''
More than a dozen names have been mentioned for the job.
