The airstrikes came shortly after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to respond vigorously to any attack. "If someone in Gaza thinks that he can raise his head after Operation Black Belt, he is sorely mistaken, Netanyahu said in a statement, referring to two days of intense fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants two weeks ago that was the worst such cross-border conflict in months.

Israel airstrikes in Gaza, kills Islamic Jihad chief and 12 others

Late Tuesday, the Israeli military had said it identified two projectiles fired from the Gaza Strip, with missile defences intercepting one.

The rockets attack was the second incident this week and rattled the shaky cease-fire brokered by

The flare-up was triggered when Israel killed a senior Islamic Jihad commander in Gaza. The militant group launched hundreds of rockets at Israel in response. Israeli retaliatory strikes killed at least 34 Palestinians, including 16 civilians.
