Israel’s Air Force bombed four terror sites in the Gaza Strip in retaliation for a rocket attack from Gaza on southern Israel.

The airstrikes late Monday night hit a terror activity site in the southern Gaza Strip, a weapon manufacturing facility in the northern Gaza Strip, and weapon storage facilities in central and southern Gaza, the Israeli military said.

The rockets from Gaza on Ashkelon earlier that evening had landed in an open field, causing no injuries.

A day earlier, two rockets fired from Gaza on Ashkelon were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, while another two landed in open areas.

More than a dozen rockets have been fired at Israel in the past two weeks, the Israel Defense Forces said, and over 200 rockets have been launched from Gaza at Israel since the beginning of the year.
