Friday night attack on Israel saw eight rockets intercepted by the Iron Dome system. One projectile hit a house in Sderot, a town near the border, causing damage but no casualties, police said.

Following a barrage of rockets from the Gaza Strip on Friday, the Israel Defense Forces responded with a wave of pre-dawn airstrikes on the Hamas-ruled enclave.

The Israeli army said it targeted sites belonging to Hamas after Palestinians fired 10 rockets into Israel late on Friday.

Eight of them were reportedly intercepted by the Iron Dome system. One projectile hit a house in Sderot, a town near the border, causing damage but no casualties, police said.

In southern Gaza, medical officials and locals said a small cabin was hit, killing a 27-year-old civilian and wounding two others.

None of the terrorist groups in Gaza claimed responsibility for firing the rockets. The Israeli military said Hamas was ultimately responsible for the attack.

Israel and Hamas have fought three wars over the past decade and tensions are high.
