Israel launched air and artillery attacks on the Gaza Strip on Sunday morning in response to the firing of two rockets into south and center of Israel, according to Hamas security sources.

 The sources said that Israeli warplanes targeted, with two missiles, military facilities in the vicinity of Gaza International Airport in the city of Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip.

 The sources added that Israeli artillery fired several shells at "two lookout posts belong to Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas on the outskirts of the town of "Beit Lahia" in the northern Gaza Strip, and the Zeitoun neighborhood in southern Gaza.

 The Ministry of Health in Gaza did not announce any casualties from the bombing, which caused damage in the targeted places and nearby homes.

The launch of the two rockets comes as the first anniversary of the assassination of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad military commander, Bahaa Abu Al-Ata, during an air raid on his home east of Gaza City on November 12, 2019, and as a result, a military escalation erupted between Israel and the Gaza Strip that lasted for several days.

 This is the first time in months that rockets have been fired from Gaza towards remote areas in central Israel.

 The tension between Israel and the factions in Gaza constitutes a new breach of the understandings of calm that were reached between the two sides last August under the auspices of Egypt, the United Nations and Qatar.
