A man was killed and three others were injured in an attack by the Israeli Air Force on tunnels and a weapons depot in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, described as retaliation for a cross-border rocket launch, the Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported.
The man killed was Abdul Karim Zaytuna (69), according to Ma'an.
An Israel Defense Forces spokeswoman said she had no immediate information about the casualties from Sunday's air strikes.
The Israel Defense Forces released a statement saying its aircraft had struck four targets, including "a terror tunnel and a weapon manufacturing facility" in the north, the vicinity of Gaza City.
"The air strikes came in response to a short-range rocket that was launched from Gaza on Saturday and wounded an Israeli woman," the statement said. "No Palestinian armed faction took credit for the launch."
Earlier this month, seven rockets were fired into southern Israel from the Gaza Strip. The rockets exploded in open areas in the Sha'ar Hanegev and Ashkelon Beach regions, causing no casualties or damage.
