Israeli airstrikes hit multiple targets in the Gaza Strip after two long-range rockets fired from Gaza struck southern Israel.

The Israeli Air Force early Thursday morning bombed two training camps in East and West Gaza City, according to an Israeli official and Palestinian witnesses. The camps reportedly are run by Hamas.

The day before, Grad rockets fired from Gaza landed in the open territory near Kiryat Gat, and then later another within the city of Ashkelon, damaging a road.

No casualties or injuries were reported in any of the attacks.
