Israel carried out air strikes in the Gaza Strip on Monday (June 24) in response to Palestinian militant rocket fire that broke weeks of relative calm along the frontier.

The air strikes left craters on the ground, broken windows in buildings and also damaged an electric pole.

No casualties were reported in the incidents.

Six rockets were fired into Israel overnight, causing no damage, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

Two of them were shot down by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system, the military said.

Israeli aircraft later struck targets in the Gaza Strip, including two weapons storage facilities, the military said, and Israel closed one its the crossings with the coastal territory, which is controlled by the Islamist movement Hamas.

No group claimed responsibility for the Palestinian rocket fire. Officials in Gaza said two of six Israeli air strikes struck training camps for the militant group Islamic Jihad.
