Israel strikes Gaza after anti-Hamas militant rocket fire

No injuries were reported in the Sunday evening attack, the Israel Defence Forces spokesman said. There was no immediate information about their identities or the motive behind their crossing of the border.

The Israeli army spokesperson said, on Twitter, that a tank targeted the outpost in response to a rocket that was sacked from Gaza earlier in the evening, which landed in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council of southern Israel and caused no injuries or damages.

Retaliation was carried out as part of Israel's policy of holding Hamas, as rulers of the Gaza Strip, responsible for all acts of violence emanating from there even though the rocket is believed to have been fired by a Salafist group operating independently of Hamas.

The rocket set off air raid sirens in southern Israel but fell short, landing inside Palestinian territory, the Israeli military said in a statement.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the Palestinian rocket fire.

The talks will focus on security, Hamas public employees, control over the crossings and Hamas' armed militias, as well as the unity government, political program and holding national elections.
