Israel responds to first Gaza rocket fire in more than a month

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military said it struck three Hamas militant posts in Gaza yesterday, in response to the first case of rocket fire from the territory in more than
a month.

The military said a rocket was fired from Gaza into Israel and landed in an open field. In response, it said it targetted the Hamas positions. No injuries were reported on
either side.

No Palestinian group took responsibility for the fire.

Israel said it holds the territory’s militant Hamas rulers responsible for any fire emanating from the coastal strip.

The typically volatile border has been quiet of late as Israel has been coping with a coronavirus outbreak and back-channel talks have been underway for a potential
prisoner exchange.
