 This is the first time the IDF has struck Gaza since the end of Operation Protective Edge this summer.

The IDF has reportedly struck a weapons cache in Gaza near Khan Yunis, following an earlier rocket attack from Gaza into Israel, which exploded in open territory near the Eshkol Regional Council on Friday afternoon.

The reports are of at least two strikes by the Israel Air Force, which was reportedly assisted by the Israel Navy.

Gaza residents in the south reported loud explosions in the region.

There are no reports of any injuries.

This is the first time the IDF has struck Gaza since the end of Operation Protective Edge this summer.

Friday afternoon\’s rocket attack against Israel marks the third such attack since the end of the summer conflict with Hamas.

The latest Gaza rocket landing in Israel came days after a European Union court ruled to remove Hamas from the EU\’s terror list.

While there were no claims of responsibility yet for Friday\’s projectile fire, former deputy defense minister Danny Danon said the incident served as subsequent proof to Europe that Gaza\’s ruling Islamist group is a terrorist organization.

"If anyone doubted this [Hamas\’ status as a terror group] then they received the answer now with the [rocket] fire," he said.

Danon also stressed that the Israeli government should respond to any violation of its sovereignty, and "not abandon the people of the South."

In late November, multiple rockets were launched from the coastal enclave into the Mediterranean Sea.
