GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Israeli warplanes raided the central Gaza Strip early Friday morning causing damage but no injuries, medics and the army said.

Witnesses told Ma’an that Israeli fighter jets fired on a site used by the al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, near al-Maghazi refugee camp.

Gaza medical officials said no injuries were reported.

The Israeli military said it targeted “a terror activity site” in Gaza, adding that “a direct hit was confirmed” in a statement.

The attack was in response to a rocket fired into southern Israel from Gaza on Thursday evening which damaged an abandoned building, the army said.
