According to a report by Hamas, the Israel Defense Forces attacked an abandoned building. No casualties were reported.

Last Thursday, the IDF bombed two militants that launched a rocket toward Israel. Tuesday’s attack was also likely a response to rocket fire earlier in the day.

The attacks last week coincided with the first anniversary of what Israel dubbed “Operation Pillar of Defense,” an eight-day battle between with Gaza’s Hamas fighters. During the conflict Israel killed Ahmed Jabari, the second-in-command of Hamas’ military wing.
