GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military planes carried out several airstrikes targeting military sites in the central Gaza Strip on Tuesday afternoon.

Sources told Ma’an that Israeli planes launched seven missiles targeting an al-Quds Brigades site, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement.

No fighters were at the site, and no injuries were reported. Material damages to the sites were reported.

Another strike also targeted a site in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army said in a statement that Israeli planes targeted 30 sites in Gaza.

Israeli news website Ynet reported that Israe's Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted several rockets fire from Gaza into Israeli territory.

Tensions have been high in Gaza over the past few days, as at least four Palestinian fighters from the Hamas and Islamic Jihad movement have been killed in Israeli airstrikes between Sunday and Monday.
