Israeli air force carried out an air raid on Gaza Strip
The Israeli air force carried out an air raid on the Gaza Strip overnight, in retaliation for a Palestinian rocket attack against southern Israel, a military spokesman said Tuesday.
"An air force plane attacked two bases of Hamas terrorist activity in the southern Gaza Strip," the Israeli armed forces said in a statement.
The Hamas Islamist movement controls the Palestinian territory.
Palestinian militants in Gaza on Monday fired a rocket which crashed into an uninhabited area of southern Israel without causing casualties or damage.
