Israel strikes Hamas sites following rocket attacks

In addition to repelling Hamas commandos' infiltration, the Israeli soldiers also practiced rescue and response scenarios to rocket and mortar attacks from the Gaza Strip, which have become an everyday reality for the Israelis living in the south of the country.

Both strikes came in response to the firing of a rocket Monday morning that landed in an open field, causing no injures, according to the Israel Defense Forces. The projectile reportedly did not cause any injuries or damage.

Israeli fighter jets continued their attacks over the Gaza Strip on Monday evening with airstrikes on some agricultural territories in the northern part of the coastal enclave.

In a statement, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, said a local man had been injured near the site of one of the Israeli airstrikes.

A few hours later, Israeli aircraft struck three more Hamas sites.

The strikes came after a rocket was sacked earlier on Monday from Gaza and hit an open area along the Israeli border, causing no injuries.

"Our policy is clear, whoever fires on us, we will return fire, forcefully", Netanyahu said in a video posted on Facebook as he was still in London.

In early July 2014, Israel waged a war on the Gaza Strip.

The Hamas rocket attack occurred the first of the month and the last came in mid-January.

The rival parties have not contested an election since 2006 parliamentary polls, which Hamas won - sparking a conflict that led to near civil war in Gaza the following year.

Missiles and rockets are occasionally fired at Israel but are often blamed on other Islamist groups inside impoverished Gaza.
