Israeli air force unleashes strikes on Gaza Strip
The planes targeted training camps belonging to the Islamic Jihad in Rafah, Khan Yunis and Gaza City, witnesses said
Israeli jets unleashed four strikes across the Gaza Strip early on Wednesday, hours after a cross-border rocket attack.
Eyewitnesses said the planes targeted training camps belonging to the Islamic Jihad in Rafah, Khan Yunis and Gaza City.
Meanwhile, the Israeli military said it struck four "terror infrastructures" in the southern Gaza Strip and that hits were confirmed.
There were no immediate reports of casualties.
Late Tuesday a rocket fired from the Palestinian enclave struck southern Israel, causing no casualties or damage.
"The reality that Hamas's territory is used as a staging ground to attack Israel is unacceptable and intolerable and will bear consequences," military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner said in a statement.
Islamic movement Hamas, which de facto rules Gaza, has not assumed responsibility for the attack. Wednesday's air strike was the third since the end of the 2014 war.
Last month, tanks fired at a Hamas position following a rocket attack.
Tuesday's rocket was the third fired from Gaza since the ceasefire ending the 50-day conflict in summer 2014, which killed about 2,200 Palestinians, most of them civilians, and 73 on the Israeli side, most of them soldiers.
