The IAF struck two Hamas infrastructure targets in the north and south of the Gaza Strip.


The IDF said the strikes came in response to a rocket launch from the Strip on Monday night.

Strikes were recorded in at least three locations in Gaza, Palestinian sources and eyewitnesses said, with Hamas bases struck near the southern city of Rafah and Gaza City in the north, as well as open land southeast of Gaza City, according to Times of Israel.


Gaza health officials said there were no immediate reports of injuries, but an AFP photographer in Gaza saw at least one man bleeding being taken for treatment from a house near the base.

Earlier a rocket hit southern Israel, in the Sha’ar Hanegev region, not causing any damage or casualties.

The launch was claimed by a salafist group linked to the Islamic State, according to Hebrew media reports.

Israel says it holds Hamas responsible for any attacks emanating from the territory it controls, and has in the past responded to any launch with strikes on Hamas targets.
