JERUSALEM (AP) – The Israeli military says warplanes have attacked what it called an arms manufacturing facility and two smuggling tunnels in the Gaza Strip, in retaliation for Palestinian rocket fire into Israel.

There were no reports from Gaza of casualties in the strikes, which took place before dawn on Thursday.

On Wednesday night, Palestinians in Gaza fired a rocket into southern Israel. It fell on open ground without causing any injuries or damage.

An Israeli military statement said that Palestinians have fired more than 250 rockets and mortar shells into Israel since the end of its Gaza offensive in January.
