Airstrikes by Israeli Forces Reported in Gaza

Airstrikes have been reported in Gaza following the discovery of the bodies of three Israeli teenagers today. Citing the Israel Defense Forces, Haaretz reports that 34 "terror targets" have been attacked by the Israeli Air Force. Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon earlier today called for the "ending" of Hamas.

ABC News reports that it's still unclear whether the attacks were in response to the teens' murders or in retaliation of an attack from Gaza:

It wasn't immediately clear whether the strikes were in retaliation for the kidnappings and murders, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had vowed to avenge. The Israel Defense Forces also tweeted early Tuesday morning that a rocket was fired from Gaza into Israel, but no damage was reported.

According to Haaretz, Israeli forces have destroyed the homes of the teens' suspected kidnappers:

Israeli soldiers break into the homes of Hamas operatives and suspected kidnappers Marwan Qawasameh and Amar Abu Aisha in Hebron. Firefighters are attempting to quell a fire which broke out in Abu Aisha's house.

According to Palestinian reports, the Israeli army detonated the houses. According to the report, around 8 P.M. the forces surrounded the houses, called on the families to evacuate and then blew them up. One Palestinian child was wounded by an explosion. Palestinian firefighters are attempting to distance the crowds from the burning houses. It was also reported that Israelis have attacked Palestinian in the Hebron old city in several different incidents.
