Israel Reportedly Strikes Gaza Targets After Rocket Fire, in Third Incident in a Month

Israel struck on Sunday an area east of the city of Gaza, Palestinian media reported, hours after three rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at southern Israel.

Two rockets hit open terrain, and no casualties or damage were reported. Another launch was intercepted by Israel's air defense system, the army said, after an alarm sounded in Israeli border communities.

On June 27, Israeli fighter jets struck Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, after two rockets were launched from the coastal enclave at southern Israel. 

The statement added that Israel held Hamas responsible for "everything that happens within the Strip" and that among the targets hit were “a workshop to produce rockets as well as infrastructure used to manufacture weapons for Hamas." The rockets launched into Israel both fell in open terrain. No casualties were reported on either side.
