The airstrikes targeted areas in eastern and western parts of the city during early hours of Thursday, AFP reported.
Israeli military officials confirmed the attacks, claiming that the air assaults were in response to “a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip late Wednesday,” a claim not yet verified by any official source in Gaza.
Witnesses said a base, belonging to the Palestinian Islamic resistance movement Hamas, was also targeted by the Israeli aerial attacks.
There have been no reports of casualties so far.
Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip have killed scores of Palestinians and injured many more over the past months.
On October 1, three Palestinians were injured in an Israeli drone attack on the town of Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza.
The Israeli regime has been launching airstrikes on Gaza on an almost regular basis since the end of the December 2008-January 2009 war on the Palestinian territories. The airstrikes have been carried out under the pretext of preventing attacks on Israel.
