Israeli aircraft pounded over a dozen militant targets in Gaza, the army said Sunday, after Palestinian projectile fire shattered a cease-fire reached just days ago after the worst flare-up since a 2014 war.There were no reports of casualties in Gaza.The Iron Dome aerial defense system intercepted one projectile, while the other was believed to have fallen short of its target and landed within Gaza, according to the army.Three were intercepted, the army said, with the fourth apparently hitting an open field.No group in Gaza claimed responsibility for the projectile attacks, which came shortly after the Saturday funeral of Razan al-Najjar, 21, a volunteer with the Gaza health ministry, who was fatally shot in the chest near Khan Younes Friday.The weekend launches were the first since Israel said it had struck some 65 militant sites in Gaza earlier this week in retaliation for a barrage of approximately 100 rockets and missiles fired from the territory Tuesday and Wednesday.
