Local sources said the first strike targeted the Abu Jarad site, causing fires and excessive property damage. Firefighters rushed to the scene and contained the fire; no injuries were reported.

The second attack targeted a site known as Hitteen, northwest of Khan Younis city, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The bombardment led to fire in a number of structures, and in nearby hothouses used by Palestinian farmers.

An Israeli military spokesperson claimed the two attacks came in retaliation to a number of homemade shells fired from Gaza into nearby Israeli settlements.

The spokesperson did not report any injuries or damage.
