Israeli warplanes hit three targets in Gaza following earlier rocket attacks launched at Israel, officials have said.
The Israeli Defence Force say that the Iron Dome defence system intercepted one rocket and another exploded in an open area in the city of Sderot.
Reuters say the overnight air strikes targeted two training camps belonging to the Islamist group Hamas, causing no injuries.
Haaretz report that a group calling itself the Omar Brigades, which identifies with the so-called Islamic State, took responsibility for the rocket fire, but the IDF said in a statement that Hamas must carry "the responsibility" for the attack.

The Israeli navy opened fire on boats off the coast of the Gaza Strip killing a Palestinian fisherman, Gaza hospital officials said.
Citing security concerns, Israel keeps a naval blockade on Gaza, which is ruled by the Islamist Hamas movement, and has designated a six nautical-mile fishing zone off the enclave's coast.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said four vessels had strayed from the fishing zone and that the Israeli army opened fire after the boats did not heed calls to halt.
An Egyptian court listed the Palestinian group Hamas as a terrorist organisation, Egyptian state television said.
Hamas is an offshoot of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood which the authorities have also declared a terrorist group and have repressed systematically since the army ousted one of its leaders, Mohamed Mursi, from the presidency in 2013.
An Egyptian court decision to list Hamas as a terrorist organization is "shocking and dangerous," the Islamist group said in a statement.
"The Egyptian court's decision to list the Hamas movement as a terror organization is shocking and is dangerous, and it targets the Palestinian people and its factions of resistance," the statement said.
"It will have no influence on the Hamas movement, which enjoys the respect of all the nation and the leaders of the nation."
