Israeli warplanes also targeted with five rockets a site, including an agricultural area, to the east of the city, causing damages to properties nearby.

Witnesses told Reuters the pre-dawn strikes hit targets in Gaza City, Rafah and Khan Younis.

The Israeli occupation army claimed that the attacks came after a missile was sacked at an illegal Israeli settlement close to the Gaza Strip.

There was no claim of responsibility for the 15 November rocket fire, but Israel routinely holds Islamist group Hamas responsible for all attacks originating from its territory.

The Israeli military said in a statement that fighter jets and attack helicopters hit two rocket ammunition manufacturing sites, underground infrastructure and a Hamas naval forces training compound.

Man killed in shark attack in Australia
Shark attacks are rare on Cable Beach, a 22-kilometre (13-mile) stretch of pristine white sand next to the town of Broome. The 55-year-old was pulled from the water with serious injuries and treated by police before paramedics arrived.

There were no casualties or damage in that attack.

Israel and Hamas last fought a war in 2014 and have exchanged fire several times since, though the border has been largely quiet in recent months.

Israel has since maintained a crippling blockade on the Gaza Strip, to isolate Hamas.

Hamas and Israel reached an agreement at the end of September to cease hostilities, although attacks continued. Israel, which deems Hamas a "terrorist" organisation, shuns direct negotiations and has never publicly acknowledged the truce.
