Gaza City, Palestinian Territories:
Israeli planes attacked Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip on Sunday evening, a Palestinian security source told AFP after Israel reported three rockets fired at its territory.
The Israeli military said its aircraft attacked the "Hamas terrorist organization's underground infrastructure" in response to the rocket fire.
"Three rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip in Israel this evening," said an English-language statement.
"In response … helicopters and fighter jets attack Hamas terror targets."
There were no immediate reports of victims from either side.
An earlier statement by the army gave no indication of where the first two missiles fell, but the Israeli media said they hit open areas.
The army said the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted a third missile.
There was no immediate claim to responsibility for the rocket launches from the Hamas Strip.
The Islamist organization warned Israel in late June that the planned annexation of parts of the occupied West Bank constituted a "declaration of war".
The next day, two rockets from Gaza were launched at the Jewish state, triggering an Israeli airstrike on Hamas facilities in the Palestinian enclave.
On July 1, Hamas launched a missile volley into the sea to warn Israel not to continue annexation, sources told the AFP Islamist organization.
Israel's proposal to annex its settlements in the West Bank and Jordan Valley is part of a broader U.S. peace plan that was released in January.
The proposals provide for the final creation of a Palestinian state in the remaining area of the West Bank and Gaza.
However, the plan falls far short of Palestinian aspirations, with a state on a reduced territory and without East Jerusalem as the capital.
Hamas and Israel have waged three wars. The recent conflict in 2014 killed 2,251 Palestinians and 74 people on the Israeli side.
