Israel says it is striking Islamic Jihad targets in Gaza and declaring a "special situation" on the home front after days of tensions following the arrest of a senior militant from the terror group in the West Bank.
A blast could be heard in Gaza City on Friday, where smoke poured out of the seventh floor of a tall building.
Israel had closed roads around Gaza earlier this week and sent reinforcements to the border as it braced for a revenge attack after the arrest of Islamic Jihad chief in the West Bank on Monday.
