The Israeli army said it targeted two suspected weapons manufacturing facilities in Gaza, in response to rocket fire into southern Israel. But Reuters video shows damage to residential houses in Beit Lehiya. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) RESIDENT, UMM SAEED: "We were sleeping in one room and our children in another room. Then we saw missiles failing from a plane nearby the house - between our house and the site is less than 10 metres. The windows were broken and the walls were damaged, this should not happen."
