GAZA, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- Israeli F16 war jets struck on Sunday night an empty building under construction east of al-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip, with no injuries reported, security sources and paramedics said.

The warplanes hovered over the coastal enclave at night and fired one missile at the building, which was leveled to ground, said the security sources, adding that residents in the refugee camp heard a huge explosion in the area.

Paramedics who rushed to the area after the missile hit the building said no injuries were reported but severe damage was caused to the building. There was no immediate response from the Israeli army on the attack.

The Israeli airstrike on Sunday night was a response to earlier rockets attacks fired by militants in the Gaza Strip on the southern Israeli city of Beer Sheba, according to Israel Radio.
