Israel strikes Hamas positions after rocket fired from Gaza
The Israeli army attacked military positions belonging to Hamas in the Gaza Strip early on Wednesday after unknown militants in the besieged Palestinian enclave fired a rocket at Israel, the army said.
In a statement the Israeli army said that one of its tanks targeted three Hamas military positions in the north of the Gaza Strip after the rocket was fired.
A security source in Gaza confirmed three positions had been damaged, but reported no casualties.
The Gaza rocket hit an open field near the border, with no immediate reports of casualties or damage, an Israeli military spokeswoman said.
No Gaza group took responsibility for the rocket fire.
Separately on Wednesday morning, Hamas's military wing announced the death of a fighter who was killed when a tunnel he was working in collapsed in Gaza the previous day.
