JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says its aircraft struck a Hamas target in the Gaza Strip in response to two shooting incidents.

The statement says the aircraft hit a military post belonging to the Islamic militant group that rules Gaza. No injuries were immediately reported in Monday’s strike.

The military says shots fired from Gaza hit Israeli army vehicles along the border on two separate occasions over the weekend.

The border with Gaza has remained mostly quiet during a nearly three month-long wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence. However, several Palestinians have been killed in violent clashes along the frontier and some rockets have been launched at Israel.

Israel fought a 50-day war against Hamas last year, which killed more than 2,200 Palestinians. On the Israeli side, 73 people were killed.
