The IDF says it targeted Hamas sites and tunnels after rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip.
Israeli warplanes targeted the southern Gaza Strip after rockets were fired from the coastal enclave.
Palestinian sources said Monday morning’s airstrikes struck a farm field in the southern city of Rafah, as well as land near the al-Furqan Mosque in the town of al-Qarara, northeast of Khan. Younis.
According to an IDF statement, two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip towards the coast near the southern city of Ashdod.
“In response … fighter jets struck military targets belonging to the terrorist organization Hamas in the Gaza Strip, including tunneling sites,” the military said.
No damage was reported from the Palestinian rockets, IDF sources saying they landed in the Mediterranean Sea.
Palestinian security sources in Gaza said the Israeli missiles caused material damage but no injuries.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the rocket launches from Gaza.
Despite a truce negotiated by Qatar between Hamas and Israel in August, there have been several outbreaks of violence in recent months.
The Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli-Egyptian air, land and naval blockade since 2007, shortly after Hamas seized control of the territory after a preemptive coup orchestrated by its rival faction, Fatah.
Hamas maintains an unofficial ceasefire with Israel, but Israel holds the group responsible for any attacks emanating from Gaza.
Hamas, meanwhile, accuses Israel of failing to honor its truce obligations, which include easing the blockade of the Palestinian enclave and putting in place large-scale infrastructure and job creation projects. .
