Israel launches air strike on Gaza after reported rocket attack

Israeli planes launched an air strike on the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, Israeli officials confirm to Fox News, in response to several rockets reportedly fired at Israel earlier in the day.

The bombing run was the first Israeli attack on Gaza since an eight-day war between Hamas and Israel in November. Six Israelis and 170 Palestinians were killed during the attacks.

Israeli military officials say Palestinians launched three rockets at Israel on Tuesday, two of which landed in Gaza and one hitting southern Israel, Reuters reports. No injuries or damages were immediately reported.

Israeli forces responded to the rocket attacks by sending Israeli planes to strike unspecified targets in Gaza, according to The Times of Israel. No injuries were reported.
