GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli airstrikes targeted two sites in the Gaza Strip overnight Sunday, Israel's army and locals said.

A military base used by Hamas' military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades, was hit south of Gaza City, while another strike hit a training site west of Khan Younis in southern Gaza.

No injuries were reported.

Israel's army said in a statement that the "IAF aircraft targeted two terror sites in the central and southern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed."

Meanwhile in the north, Israeli troops fired across the Syrian ceasefire line in the occupied Golan Heights after a projectile struck Israeli territory, the military said.

"Earlier this morning, a projectile fired from Syria exploded near an Israeli position on Mount Hermon," a military spokesman told AFP, saying troops had responded with artillery fire towards the area from which it came.

Army radio said three mortar shells had been fired from Syria, although only one had struck inside Israeli-held territory.

Israel, which is technically at war with Syria, seized 1,200-square-kilometre of the Golan Heights plateau during the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it in a move never recognized by the international community.

Since the Syrian conflict erupted in 2011, the plateau has been tense, with a growing number of projectiles, mostly stray, hitting the Israeli side, prompting an occasional armed response.

That'll teach 'em to reconcile with Fatah, form a unity government, renounce violence, hold elections and recognize Israel's right to exist within its legal borders.

Wow, Bibi's getting edgy, new unity government obviously didn't go down well there. Don't respond to provocation Hamas, show everyone what you are made of politically, we know what you can do on the resistance front. Everyone already knows how brave Al Qassam are. Show the world the other side of Hamas, educated, forward thinking, peace making. Viva Palestine.

4 ) Law / Order

From now on Fatah, PA and Abbas will be held responsible for the missile launched by Palestinian terrorists to Israel. It will be interesting to see retaliation against Ramallah targets.

Why cant Israel bomb Gaza ? Gaza seems to send rockets into Israel whenever they feel like it. Whats good for the goose, is good for the gander.

#4 Law/order - And just maybe some day Israel will be held to account for its murder of civilians, overreaction and suppression of demonstrations, theft of land and resources, imprisonment without charges, incursions into Gaza, racism, etc., etc. How long can the list get? International Criminal Court and war crimes. BDS Israel.

#4 "From now on Fatah, PA and Abbas will be held responsible for the missile launched by Palestinian terrorists to Israel. It will be interesting to see retaliation against Ramallah targets." The cheaper the crook, the gaudier the patter.
