The IDF has announced that aircraft hit targets in Gaza after militants fired rockets at southern Israel. Attacks from Gaza have declined since a campaign in November (pictured), but sporadic fire persists.

The strike came in response to a rocket fired from Gaza the night before that landed in an open field within Israel, injuring no one, according to the military. No group took immediate responsibility for the rocket.

Though a Salafist extremist group has owned up to other recent attacks, Israel holds Hamas, Gaza’s ruling party, responsible for all fire from the territory.
