Israel Launches Airstrike on Gaza After Rocket Fire

TEL AVIV, Israel — Israeli aircraft hit the northern Gaza Strip on Sunday after a rocket fired from the Hamas-controlled territory hit southern Israel, according to the military.

Israel's military said the rocket fired from Gaza landed in an open area and no injuries were reported. It was the third rocket attack in two weeks, according to the military.

It said that in response to the rocket, Israel's military struck "terror infrastructure in the northern Gaza Strip. Hits were confirmed."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused the world of ignoring the rocket fire from Gaza.

"I have not heard anyone in the international community condemn this firing; neither has UN said a word," he told Sunday's Cabinet meeting. "It will be interesting if this silence continues when we use our full strength to uphold our right to defend ourselves."
