BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of rockets fired from the Gaza Strip struck southern Israel late Monday, Israel's army said, while residents of the occupied West Bank said three landed near Bethlehem.

There were no immediate reports of injury or damage.

An army spokesman said "several barrages" of rockets from Gaza hit southern Israel. He said the exact number was still being compiled.

The spokesman said the army was looking into reports that three rockets landed in the Bethlehem-area illegal settlement of Gush Etzion.

Meanwhile a Code Red siren was heard in the Hof Ashkelon regional council.

Nine Palestinians, six of them members of Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades, were killed in Israeli strikes overnight.

An Israeli army statement said that "aircraft targeted three concealed rockets launchers in the northern Gaza Strip."

Earlier Monday, Israeli warplanes struck the northern Gaza Strip, injuring a young boy, medics said.

Airstrikes hit agricultural areas in northern Jabaliya, with medical sources saying a four-year-old boy sustained moderate injuries.

Another two airstrikes hit agricultural land in eastern Jabaliya, causing damages to property.

Two airstrikes also hit nearby Beit Lahiya, with no injuries reported.

Additionally, an airstrike hit the al-Shujayyia neighborhood of Gaza City, with no injuries reported.
