Israel carried out an airstrike on a Hamas site in Gaza early Saturday local time, the Associated Press is reporting.
The Israeli military says it launched the airstrike to retaliate for a rocket launched from Gaza into southern Israel on Friday, according to the AP.
This is Israel’s first strike on Palestinian territory since a 50-day war this summer. Last month, Amnesty International accused Israel of displaying “callous indifference” during that conflict by launching attacks on civilians’ homes.
