Palestinian media posted on Wednesday what they claim is footage of the IDF response to rockets fired at Israel from Gaza. In the video, several explosions can be seen in the distance, followed by smoke.

The Israeli Air Force attacked four targets in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday morning, following an earlier rocket attack on Israeli territory, the IDF spokesperson said. The IDF identified the targets, in the southern part of the coastal enclave, as terror infrastructure.

On Tuesday night, a rocket from Gaza exploded in the Gan Yavne region shattering four weeks of quiet and setting off air raid sirens in the Ashdod and Lachish regions.

Apart from a 15-year-old girl who was taken to Barzilai Medical Center in Ashdod, suffering from a panic attack, the rocket failed to cause injuries, though emergency responders were still assessing on Tuesday whether the projectile had caused any damages. 

Tuesday's rocket was the first mid-range rocket attack since a cease-fire went into effect on August 26, 2014 following the month-and-a-half long war with Gaza known as Operation Protective Edge.
