Israel shells Gaza Strip after rockets hit

The Israeli army shelled the Gaza Strip late Thursday, after militants in the enclave launched at least one rocket against a town in southern Israel, DPA reported.

Gaza medical officials said three people were injured when the Israeli shells struck a neighbourhood in eastern Gaza City. No injuries were reported from the rocket strike.

Palestinian militants in the Strip have recently increased their rocket fire at southern Israel after weeks of quiet.

Israel routinely retaliates with airstrikes and shelling.
