Israeli aircraft fired at targets in the northern Gaza Strip on Monday after a rocket was shot at Israel, the IDF announced.
No fatalities were announced following the air strike, as per Gaza residents. The rocket shot toward southern Israel set off sirens after tracking systems observed the launch, however, it landed within the Gaza Strip, a military report informed.
Small jihadist cells in the Gaza Strip, which is managed by Hamas, sometimes launch rockets into Israel.
Hamas had observed a de facto ceasefire with Israel since 2014 when 2,100 Palestinians and 73 Israelis were killed in a war.
Israel maintains that Hamas is accountable for all rocket launches from the territory.
This is the fourth such incident reported this month. On October 16, a rocket fired from Gaza exploded in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council, which is also near the Gaza border.
No sirens were heard prior to the explosion and no injuries or damages were caused.
