Jerusalem, Dec 8 (TIWN) The Israeli military said on Sunday that it carried out airstrikes in the Gaza Strip, hours after three rockets were fired by militants in the besieged enclave.

The strikes targeted two sites belonging to Al-Qassam Brigades, the Hamas military wing, in northern Gaza, with another series of sorties at a Qassam site west of Gaza City, Hamas officials said.  There were no immediate reports of injuries.  Late Saturday night, Palestinian militants in Gaza launched three rockets at southern Israel.  All three projectiles were intercepted by the Iron Dome defence system, the army said, amending an earlier statement according to which two of the three rockets were shot down over southern Israel.
