JERUSALEM, July 16 (Reuters) – Israeli fighter jets struck Gaza following rocket launches on Saturday, hours after U.S. President Joe Biden flew from Israel to Saudi Arabia on a Middle East trip aimed at deepening Israel’s integration into the region.

The Israeli military said it hit a rocket-manufacturing site in central Gaza that is run by Hamas, the Islamist militant group that governs the blockaded strip.

Witnesses said the site is used as a training camp.

Sirens sounded in southern Israel on two occasions early on Saturday, warning of incoming rocket fire.

One rocket was intercepted and three projectiles landed in open spaces, the military said.

No group claimed responsibility for the launches.
