Israel, however, has blamed the islamist Hamas movement, which controls the palestinian enclave, and bombard usually the bases of its military wing in retaliation.

According to Palestinian news agency Maan, the Israeli reaction injured four people, including one who is in serious condition.

In response to the rocket that was sacked toward Ashkelon Tuesday night and landed in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council, the IDF attacked two Hamas terror targets in northern Gaza.

"We will not allow the enemy to keep Gaza a testing ground for its weapons،" Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said. Three injuries were reported، one of them critical، due to a fracture in the skull.

"The airstrikes targeted Hamas positions in the centre of the Gaza Strip", Qasem said.

A medical official at Shifa hospital in Gaza City were being treated for shrapnel wounds from the explosion.

He said that Israeli F16 warplanes bombed a site northwest of Gaza City and another to the west of the city causing damage to both sites and to civilian homes nearby.

Hamas, the terror group that rules Gaza, has largely refrained from firing rockets into Israel since it fought a devastating war with Israel in 2014.
