While the Israeli army has yet to make a statement on the bombing, the airstrikes followed three rockets being fired from Gaza at surrounding Israeli settlements earlier Sunday.

The Israeli army said two of the three rockets were intercepted by its Iron Dome defence system.

No one has claimed responsibility for the rockets fired from Gaza.
