Israeli warplanes targeted the southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday, Israel's army said.
"An IDF aircraft targeted a launching site which was used to fire four mortars into southern Israel at 6 p.m. this evening. A direct hit was confirmed," an Israeli army spokeswoman said.
Witnesses told Ma'an that the strikes targeted an area east of Rafah, with no injuries reported.
Eight rockets were fired from Gaza following the airstrike, with one being shot down the others landing in open areas.
Earlier, three mortar shells were fired into southern Israel from Gaza, landing in the Eshkol regional council, Israel's army said.
There were no reports of injuries or damage.
