Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired a rocket toward Israel on Saturday night, setting off air-raid sirens in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, the Israeli military announced.

Most recently, the Israeli Air Force struck Hamas military infrastructure on November 15 following a rocket attack on central Israel.

In the south, Israeli warplanes fired five rockets at two sites to the west of the cities of Khan Younis and Rafah, causing destruction to the sites and damages to neighboring properties.

Israel said on Sunday its military struck Hamas targets in Gaza in response to a rocket attack launched from the Palestinian enclave.

In a Twitter post, the IDF said it had struck two rocket manufacturing sites and several underground infrastructures belonging to Hamas.

There were no casualties in that attack.

Hamas, considered a terrorist group by Israel, seized control of Gaza from the rival Palestinian movement Fatah in 2007 in a near civil war.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said Israel is to blame for "everything that happens in Gaza as it continues to blockade it and carry out attacks".

Palestinian analysts say cross-border fire from Gaza is often used as a bargaining tool to secure Israel's green light for the entry of Qatari financial aid into the territory.
