The Israeli regime bombed the Gaza Strip on Sunday after police said a rocked was fired from the Palestinian enclave and landed in the Israeli city of Sderot.
Israeli police said the rocket hit between two buildings in Sderot, on a road located nearly 2.5 miles from Gaza. The rocket did not cause any casualties.
Israeli forces then attacked Palestinian movement Hamas in the northern region of Gaza with bombs and tank fire, Israeli Army spokesman Peter Lerner said.
"In response to the rocket attack from the Gaza Strip, the IAF (Israeli air force) and tanks targeted two Hamas posts in the northern Gaza Strip," the army spokesman said in a statement.
According to Palestinian health and security sources, two people were injured by the Israeli strikes.
"One of them is a 20-year-old (young man) who was hit by shrapnel in the face," said Ashraf al-Qudra, a spokesman for the Palestinian health ministry in Gaza.
Witnesses reported that a base of Hamas's military wing, the Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades, was also hit in nearby Beit Lahya.
Israeli security sources in the territory said Israeli fire targeted several areas in northern Gaza and that a reservoir in Beit Hanun was destroyed by the attacks.
According to Israeli media, it was the first time that downtown Sderot had been targeted by a rocket from Gaza Strip since the last conflict between Israel and Palestinians in the area in 2014.
Also, Israeli air strikes hit four sites in Gaza on 2 July after a rocket hit a building in Sderot.
