IDF Says its Aircraft Struck a Hamas Target in the Gaza Strip in Response to Terrorist Rocket

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says its aircraft struck a Hamas target in the Gaza Strip in response to rocket fire from the territory.

The military says that it hit a military training facility of the Islamic militant group that rules the Gaza Strip early on Monday. No injuries were reported.

Hours earlier, a rocket landed in Israel, causing no injuries.

The Israel-Gaza frontier has been largely quiet since Israel and Hamas fought a 50-day war in 2014 that killed more than 2,200 Palestinians and 73 people on the Israeli side. Still, rockets are launched occasionally from the territory and Israel typically responds with airstrikes.

Several Gazans have been killed in clashes with Israeli troops during the current outburst of Israeli-Palestinian violence, which has mainly centered on Jerusalem and the West Bank.
