The Israeli Air Force struck a fire-ready rocket launcher in the northern Gaza Strip Monday night, this after three rockets were fired towards Israel from the Hamas-ruled enclave earlier in the day, causing no damage or injuries. 


The IDF Spokesman's Unit said the pilots reported hitting their mark.


The first two launchings from Gaza were deemed Qassam fire; the third is believed to be a mortar shell.


Two of the rockets landed in Sdot Negev Regional Council limits. The Eshkol Regional Council was the site of the third rocket landing. Security forces are still canvassing the area for the shells.


Palestinian gunmen fired a mortar shell at Israel on Sunday as well. The rocket landed in Eshkol, causing no harm. IDF forces returned fire at the fire's point of origin.
