Israel strikes back after rocket fired from Gaza

No group claimed the rocket attack, the first in months, which reportedly struck an open area and caused no injuries.

    Israeli's military has targeted "terror infrastructure" in northern Gaza, after a rocket was fired into the country - the first such attack in months.

    Air raid sirens sounded in the late evening local time on Thursday in the southern border town of Sderot and surrounding communities after at least one rocket was fired, the military said, according to the Reuters news agency.

    No group immediately claimed responsibility for firing the rocket, which reportedly struck an open area and caused no injuries.

    In response, Israeli security sources said tanks had fired at a northern Gaza military training camp belonging to the military wing of Hamas - the al-Qassam Brigades. No injuries were reported.

    The Israel-Gaza border has been largely quiet since a 50-day conflict last year. Israel marked its 67th independence day on Thursday.
