The Israeli military attacked targets in the Gaza Strip on Sunday night. The attack, which was initially not described in detail according to Israeli media reports, took place just a few hours after a rocket attack from the Gaza Strip on the Israeli border area.
It was initially unclear which group was responsible for the attack on southern Israel. Most recently, several rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel in early November.
Two members of the militant Palestinian organization Islamic Jihad were killed during an Israeli military operation in the West Bank on Thursday night. Islamic Jihad is particularly active in the Gaza Strip and repeatedly carries out rocket attacks from there.
