Israeli army strikes Hamas targets in Gaza following rocket attack


Israeli tanks struck Hamas military posts in the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday night, after Palestinian militants fired a projectile into Israeli territory, according to a media report on Wednesday.

This was the second such incident this week.

No injuries were reported on either side.

Despite a Qatari-brokered truce between Hamas and Israel in August, there have been several flare-ups of violence in recent months.

Israel has enforced a blockade on the Strip since 2007, joined later by Egypt.

Both argue that the limits on imports are for security reasons.
