"The IDF struck targets in the Gaza Strip on Friday night in response to the firing of a rocket sent into Israel earlier in the evening, breaking a lull of violence amid the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

"IDF aircraft and tanks attacked military positions and infrastructure used for underground activity by Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip," the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said in a statement.

"The attacks were carried out in response to rocket fire launched from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory earlier in the evening," the statement added.

Explosions were heard in southern Israel on Friday night after incoming rocket sirens were activated in communities bordering the Gaza Strip. The sirens were activated around 9.30 p.m. in the southern college town of Sderot and neighboring communities including Nivim and Or Haner.

The IDF said that one projectile was fired from the northern part of the Hamas-run coastal enclave, with local reports saying that it struck an open field.

There were no reports of damage or injuries.

Palestinian media reports later said that Israeli Air Force jets struck several targets in the Hamas-run coastal enclave.

The projectile was the first fired in almost a month, when a rocket was fired towards southern Israel but landed inside the Gaza Strip..."
