İrem UZUN -TDO- Israeli aircraft on Sunday struck multiple sites in the Gaza Strip in response to a rocket fired earlier from the Palestinian territory, Israel's military said. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
The Israeli air force struck two rocket ammunition manufacturing sites, a military compound and “underground infrastructures”, the Israel Defense Forces said on Sunday. A rocket was fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip on Saturday evening, according to the army, shortly after warning sirens sounded in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon. The army statement gave no further details, but emergency services said they had no notification of anyone wounded and Israeli media said the projectile fell on open ground.
Reports suggest the Israeli forces hit targets in the Gaza City as well as the southern Gaza cities of Rafah and Khan Younis where plumbs of smoke and flames were seen, according to witnesses. On 15 November, the Israeli army also struck Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip in retaliation for another incidence of rocket fire into Israel. Although no group has yet claimed responsibility, Israel holds Gaza’s Hamas rulers responsible for all rocket fire out of the territory and usually strikes Hamas targets in response.
