The Israeli Air Force struck three targets in the Gaza Strip early Monday morning following a 24-hour period in which Palestinian terrorists fired over 100 rockets into southern Israel, injuring three people.

Israeli warplanes targeted a tunnel used for terrorist purposes and a weapons storage facility in the northern Gaza Strip, and a rocket-launching site in the south of the Strip, the IDF Spokesman's Office said in a statement.

The airstrikes, the IDF said, were in response to the rocket and mortar fire into Israel.

Shortly before midnight, Palestinian Islamic Jihad announced that a cease-fire had gone into effect. Two rockets were fired after the announcement, but the volatile border region had been quiet for a number of hours.
