"Contrary to Palestinian reports. the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) did not attack in the northern Gaza Strip", the IDF said in a statement, denying any involvement, as cited by Reuters.

The previous such announcement was on October 30, when Israel blew up a tunnel dug by Islamic Jihad.

"A short while ago, an additional rocket was launched from the Gaza Strip at Israeli territory and fell in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council, southern Israel", it added.

Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas missed a major deadline in their reconciliation bid by failing to transfer power in the Gaza Strip.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage caused by the Gaza rockets themselves, but two Israelis were treated for anxiety attacks and a man in his 30s lightly injured his leg while running to a rocket shelter, the Magen David Adom rescue service said.

Those Arab sources, according to Israel's Channel 2 News, suggest that the recent smattering of rockets at Israel-one of which landed in a kindergarten in the Israeli town of Sderot, is part of the Islamic Jihad's policy of undermining the reconciliation efforts of Hamas and Fatah.

The army did not say when the crossings would reopen. Israel considers responsible for the "hostile act" committed from the territory of the Gaza Strip.

In the last few days IDF had targeted Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip several times.

The rocket launches in the direction of Israel from the Gaza Strip were resumed after a three-month break after US President Donald Trump ordered to transfer the US embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on December 6 and recognized the city as the capital of the Jewish state. They insist that Jerusalem is the single and indivisible capital of Israel.
