The interior ministry building was damaged during the raid

Israeli warplanes have struck the Palestinian interior ministry for the second time in a week.

Rescue workers said two people were wounded in Wednesday`s strike and witnesses said a building next to the ministry was hit, causing some damage.

The Israeli military confirmed that it bombed the ministry`s main building.

Hamas controls the ministry, which has nominal authority over some Palestinian security forces.

Palestinian fighters, meanwhile, hit a large Israeli city with a rocket from Gaza for the first time on Tuesday.

The attack caused no casualties but drew a pledge of harsh retaliation from Israel, which is already in the midst of a military offensive against Gaza.

Ehud Olmert, the Israeli prime minister, described the rocket attack on the coastal city of Ashkelon as a `major escalation`.

The attack came hours after a deadline set by Palestinian fighters holding an Israeli soldier passed with Israel rejecting demands to release Palestinian prisoners.
