Israeli aircraft strike targets in Gaza Strip after rockets launched

Israel's military says its aircraft struck targets in the Gaza Strip after rockets from the territory were launched at Israel.

The military says it hit two weapons storage facilities and a rocket launch site early Monday. No injuries were reported.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said six rockets were fired at Israel overnight, causing no damage or injuries. The military said two rockets were intercepted by the missile defense system known as "Iron Dome." The other four landed in open areas.

Rocket fire from Gaza has declined since a military campaign in November, before which militants were firing rockets on an almost daily basis. Sporadic fire still persists however.
