Nine Palestinians including militants have been killed in the Gaza Strip, as Israeli forces launched an operation against Hamas in retaliation for a rocket attack on an Israeli school bus.

The Israeli armed forces say they had identified what they called two terrorist squads and targeted the suspected militants from the ground and air.

Hamas responded by firing several rockets at Israel. The strikes were a response to an attack on Thursday when an anti-tank missile was used to target an Israeli school bus just across the border.

A teenager and the driver were injured in the attack, for which Hamas claimed responsibility.

Two years of low-level skirmishes on the border escalated suddenly last month when Hamas fired a barrage of rockets at Israel, triggering a response that has seen 18 Palestinians killed so far.
