After alleging a “rocket” was fired from Gaza, and struck an open area in an Israeli settlement in the Negev, that Israeli Air Force fired missiles into grounds run by the Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, and into Palestinian lands, causing damage.

Media sources in Gaza said an Israeli drone fired a missile into a Qassam site, and almost instantly, followed by a missile from an Israeli fighter jet, destroying an entire building, without causing casualties.

The sources added that another missile struck vacant lands in the Zeitoun neighborhood, in Gaza Strip, and close to Karni cargo crossing, east of Gaza, causing damage.
