A security source told AFP that Israeli warplanes had struck two bases belonging to Hamas' military wing in northern Gaza last night, causing significant damage.

The Israeli military said it carried out the air attacks in response to a rocket fired towards Israel. Three injuries were reported، one of them critical، due to a fracture in the skull.

A spokesman for the Hof Ashkelon regional council said that sirens were also sounded in the nearby towns of Zikim and Carmia.

Israel has repeatedly said it holds Hamas, which controls Gaza, responsible for the firing and often retaliates by attacking Hamas positions.

COGAT, the Israeli agency that oversees civilian affairs in the occupied Palestinian territories, said it would allow in small numbers of businesspeople from annexed east Jerusalem looking to invest in the coastal territory.

"A short while ago, a projectile hit an open region in the Ashkelon region".

Four Palestinians were injured by Israeli air strikes that hit Gaza overnight, Palestinian media reported on Wednesday.

"The occupation claims that a group from Gaza launched rockets at them, but there is no side in Gaza that has claimed responsibility".

"Israel holds the terrorist organization exclusively responsible for activities on the Strip", stated the IDF after the strike.
