Israeli army strikes Hamas targets in Gaza following rocket attack

Israeli tanks struck Hamas military posts in the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday night, after Palestinian militants fired a projectile into Israeli territory, media reports on Wednesday said.

This was the second such incident this week.

No injuries were reported on either side.

Despite a Qatari-brokered truce between Hamas and Israel in August, there have been several flare-ups of violence in recent months.

Israel, the United States and the European Union list Hamas as a terrorist organisation.

Hamas controls the Gaza Strip, where some two million Palestinians live in crowded, impoverished conditions.

Israel has enforced a blockade on the Strip since 2007, joined later by Egypt.

Both argue that the limits on imports are for security reasons.
