BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli warplanes struck multiple targets across the Gaza Strip late Tuesday, with no injuries initially reported.
Israel's army said it targeted "5 concealed rocket launchers in northern Gaza, one terror activity site in central Gaza, and a weapon manufacturing facility in southern Gaza" in response to rocket fire.
Earlier, five rockets were fired from Gaza, Israel's military said, with two intercepted, two falling in Gaza and one landing in an open area.
Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, said a young Palestinian girl died and three family members suffered injuries late Tuesday in an explosion in Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip.
Four people including two children arrived at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, with the two children said to be in critical condition.
Residents in the area said they believed the explosion was caused by a homemade rocket.
