AFP: Israel retaliates after rocket fired into Gaza: army13 January 2019 | 03:15 | FOCUS News Agency
"Earlier tonight, a rocket was launched from Gaza towards Israeli territory. In response, IDF fighter jets targeted two of Hamas' underground structures in the Gaza Strip," Israel Defense Forces tweeted.
"We will continue operating to defend Israeli civilians," it added.
Two targets in Gaza City were hit by the Israeli strikes and no one was harmed, security sources in Gaza said.
The clashes come a day after a Gaza woman was shot dead by Israeli forces during weekly protests and clashes along the Gaza border.
The health ministry named her as Amal al-Taramsi, 43, saying she was the third woman to die in months of clashes that have seen at least 241 Palestinians killed.
Another 25 Palestinians were wounded along the Israeli border in Friday's violence.
The Israeli army said that around 13,000 Palestinians had gathered in multiple sites along the border.
"The rioters have burned tyres and hurled blocks, explosive devices and grenades towards (Israeli) troops and at the Gaza Strip security fence," an army statement read.
The army also struck two positions belonging to Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas on Friday, it said.
At least once a week since March, Palestinians have taken part in often violent protests with backing from Hamas.
