It was the first to be fired from the Palestinian coastal enclave since the first week of July, and set off sirens, the Israeli army said.

Israeli fighter jets carried out strikes on Hamas facilities in the Gaza Strip after a "rocket" was fired from the Hamas-controlled enclave towards Israel, its military said Monday.

Israel said Sunday night a "projectile" fired from Gaza had been intercepted by its Iron Dome anti-rocket system.

It was the first to be fired from the Palestinian coastal enclave since the first week of July, and set off sirens, the Israeli army said.

In response, "our fighter jets and & aircraft just struck subterranean Hamas terror facilities in Gaza," the Israeli army said in a statement.

A spokesperson for the regional council of Shaar Hanegev, the area where the sirens sounded, said the projectile launched from Gaza had not caused any damage or casualties.
