Overnight air strikes were carried out by Israeli forces in Gaza Strip of Palestine, international media reported on Sunday.
News agency AFP quoting Israeli army reported that a rocket had been fired from the Gaza Strip towards Israel on Saturday, the first in a month.
“In response to the rocket fired toward Israeli territory, IDF fighter jets targeted overnight (Sunday) a weapons manufacturing site belonging to the Hamas terrorist organisation,” the report said quoting Israeli army statement.
Israeli forces hit a Hamas militant tunnel in the Southern Gaza Strip, it said.
The report quoting armed wing of Hamas said it used anti-aircraft missiles during Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip.
Security sources in Gaza reported two strikes in the south of the enclave, one against a military training site in Khan Younis and the other in an uninhabited area close to Rafah.
The strikes caused no injuries, AFP quoted Palestinian medical sources as saying.
“The Zionist enemy is extending its aggression against our people by brutally bombarding the Gaza Strip, following its crime of executing the martyr Ammar Mufleh in Huwara,” Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem said.
A surge in bloodshed in the occupied West Bank has sparked international criticism of the Israeli army for its use of lethal force against Palestinian civilians.
Criticism has focused on the killing of Ammar Hadi Mufleh, 22, in disputed circumstances in the West Bank town of Huwara, just south of Nablus, on Friday.
At least 145 Palestinians have been killed in violence in Israel and the West Bank, including annexed east Jerusalem, this year, the heaviest toll since 2015.
In August, at least 49 Palestinians, including combatants but also civilians, were killed in three days of fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza, which has been under Israeli blockade since 2007.
