One strike set fire to a medicine warehouse in northern Gaza, Salmiya added.
Specific targets were hit and all of the air force planes returned safely to their base, the IDF Spokesperson said.
strikes followed the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization's claims of
responsibility for firing four projectiles at southern Israel from the
Gaza Strip earlier on Tuesday.
Kassam rockets slammed into a field and a parking lot in a kibbutz in
the Sha'ar Hanegev regional council at around 11 a.m. A vehicle was
damaged in the attack.
The Color Red rocket alert system was activated during both waves of
rocket attacks. Residents of the area were asked to temporarily remain
in their homes.
