Jewish warplanes have targeted targets in Palestinian territory after Palestinian militants in Gaza fired rockets at Israel.

The Israeli military says about 10 Hamas positions were targeted early Wednesday morning after 15 rockets hit southern Israel.

On Tuesday, a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit the Israeli coastal city of Ashdod, injuring two people.

The Palestinians are seeking an independent state but the US-backed deal is seen as a challenge to the Palestinian cause.

So far no casualties have been reported from the latest bombings, and Israel says Hamas rockets fired into the air have destroyed the Iron Dome.
