At least two Palestinians have been killed after Israeli fighter jets pounded near the city of Khan Younis in southern Gaza, medics say.

The Friday morning strike hit Khuza'a, an area near the border that lies ine eastern Khan Younis, a spokesman for the emergency services told AFP.

On Thursday, Israeli forces attacked the Gaza Strip, killing at least five people and injuring dozens of others.

The Israeli army has confirmed that its planes and ground forces have targeted the Gaza Strip.

Israel has been regularly bombarding Gaza ever since its 22-day war on the impoverished enclave in December 2008 and January 2009, which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians -- many of them women and children.

The assaults come as Tel Aviv has imposed an all-out siege on the coastal enclave since June 2007.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu boasted on Thursday that the Tel Aviv regime would not stop short of taking any military action against the Gaza Strip.
