TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Israeli army bombed several targets across the Gaza Strip overnight.
Israeli attacks were recorded in at least three locations in Gaza, Palestinian security sources and witnesses said, with Hamas bases struck near the southern city of Rafah and Gaza City, as well as an empty area in the center of Gaza, Al Jazeera reported.
The interior ministry in Gaza said in a statement the attack from Israel caused damage but it did not provide specifics.
Ashraf al-Qidra, Palestinian health ministry spokesman, said no causalities were recorded as a result of the attacks.
Israel claims that the attacks were launched is response to rocket fire from the Gaza Strip which landed in an unpopulated area in the occupied territories without causing any injuries.
The Israeli military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip, with civilians being the main target of such attacks.
Israel has launched several wars on the Palestinian coastal sliver, the last of which began in early July 2014. The military aggression, which ended on August 26, 2014, killed nearly 2,200 Palestinians. Over 11,100 others were also wounded in the war.
