A Kassam rocket landed near a kindergarten in a kibbutz near Ashkelon on Tuesday morning, injuring a 14-year-old girl. Four more Israelis were treated for shock.

The IAF struck seven terror targets early Tuesday morning following the firing of 10 mortar shells into Israeli territory on Monday.

The 'Army of Islam' organization in Gaza claimed responsibility for the Kassam rocket attack.

In their statement, the Army of Islam said the Kassam was in response to the three members of the organization that were killed during an Israeli attack last month.

The IDF spokesperson's office said that the Air Force hit three terror tunnels in the northern Strip and a smuggling tunnel in southern Gaza.

Palestinians claimed the IAF struck several targets in the Gaza strip late Monday or early Tuesday, AFP reported.
