Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel's policy is unequivocally to respond to even the most minimal of rocket fire emanating out of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip towards Israeli cities.

Ashraf al-Qedra, spokesman for the Gaza health ministry, told reporters that at least three civilians were lightly to moderately injured in the air strikes.

Hamas Movement warned Monday evening that it would not "allow a continuation of Israeli escalation against the people of Gaza".

The Israeli army on Monday ordered a Palestinian journalist to be detained without trial for six months, less than a year after freeing him following a prolonged hunger strike.

Palestinian reports said one man was wounded in the Israeli strike.
