A missile launch from Gaza Strip has been detected by Israeli military, Israeli Defence Forces reported on Saturday.

The Israeli defence forces reported through the official Twitter account that a missile launch from Gaza Strip territory was detected.

​Earlier, IDF reported that sirens sounded in Israel's Sdot Negev and Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Councils.

Later, Israel Defense Forces reported that Israeli aircraft attacked two underground infrastructure facilities of the Palestinian movement Hamas in response to the rocket launch.

"Earlier tonight, a rocket was launched from Gaza towards Israeli territory. In response, IDF fighter jets targeted two of Hamas' underground structures in the Gaza Strip. We will continue operating to defend Israeli civilians," the statement said.

At the end of previous month, IDF said they had detected a rocket launch from the Gaza Strip, which was then the first launch from the Palestinian enclave at the Israeli territory in over a month.

IDF said back then that they responded to the missile launch by striking a Hamas post in the south of Gaza.
