The Israeli Air Force targeted Hamas infrastructure in the Gaza Strip, west of Gaza City, late Tuesday night following an earlier rocket attack from the Hamas-controlled territory, according to The Jerusalem Post's sister site Maariv, citing Palestinian media sources.

According to Palestinian media, there were a number of injuries resulting from the IDF strike, and one person was rushed to Al-Shifa Hospital located in Gaza City.

Rocket sirens were sounded earlier Monday evening in the coastal city of Ashkelon as a missile was launched at the city from Gaza. According to the IDF the rocket landed in an open area, causing no injuries or damage.
