Israel Air Force planes attacked sites in the Gaza Strip on Friday, the Israeli army said.

The strikes in the northern Gaza Strip were a response to an immediate threat of rocket fire into Israeli territory, according to the Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson's Unit. The army confirmed that the Air Force hit rocket-launching equipment in Beit Hanun. 

Hamas said on its website that the strikes caused no injuries or damage. 

On Thursday, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian suspected of plotting a terror attack in the West Bank town of Birzeit.

Earlier this month, the Israeli army struck Gaza targets a number of times in response to rocket fire
