Israeli jets struck two sites in the blockaded Gaza Strip late Wednesday night, the Israeli military said in a statement.
"The two sites in the southern Gaza Strip belong to Hamas," the statement read.
"The raid came in response to a shell fired from the Gaza Strip that landed in an area of southern Israel Saturday evening," it claimed.
"The Israeli Defense Forces hold Hamas fully responsible for [rockets fired from] the Gaza Strip," the army said.
On Wednesday evening, the army claimed that a rocket fired from Gaza had landed in southern Israel without causing any damage or injuries.
No Palestinian factions have claimed responsibility for the rocket allegedly fired at Israel.
