JERUSALEM — Israel’s Air Force attacked four targets in Gaza, in response to rocket fire from Gaza that injured an Israeli woman.

The attacks early Monday morning struck three tunnels between Gaza and Israel as well as what the IDF said in a statement was a weapons manufacturing facility in the northern Gaza Strip.

One Palestinian man was killed in the attacks, according to Palestinian media.

On Saturday, a rocket fired from Gaza struck the western Negev, injuring an Israeli woman. On Friday night, a rocket fired from Gaza damaged two homes in the western Negev.

“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip,” said the IDF spokesman in a statement.
