The Israeli military struck targets in the Gaza Strip in response to a Palestinian rocket attack on Thursday night.

The army said that tank and aircraft fire struck two Hamas military posts in northern Gaza. There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Earlier Thursday, the army said a single rocket was fired toward Israel from Gaza.

There were no reports of damage or injuries on the Israeli side.

Israel holds Gaza’s Hamas rulers responsible for all fire out of the seaside territory.

The exchange occurred just hours after the state-run Lebanese National News Agency (NNA) reported that a “blast” was “heard in Nabatieh,” adding that that “the source and cause of the blast remain unknown; however, the blast coincided with intensive Israeli enemy spying flights in the airspace of different regions.”

With regard to that report, the Israeli military responded, “An anti-aircraft missile was launched over Lebanese territory toward an IDF UAV. The UAV was not hit.”

No clashes broke out in northern Israel following the incident.
