Israeli warplanes struck four targets in the Gaza Strip in response to a rocket that landed near Ashkelon.

The Israel Defense Forces said the targets included several smuggling tunnels in southern Gaza, as well as a weapons manufacturing facility, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The January 7 night raid followed the firing of a Katyusha rocket at the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon. The rocket caused no casualties.

Palestinians said one person was killed and two wounded in the strikes.
