Israeli war planes bombed an alleged weapons manufacturing site in the central Gaza Strip overnight after a rocket was fired from the Palestinian territory, Israel's army said on Tuesday.

The rocket landed in southern Israel but caused no damage or injuries, the army said. There were no immediate reports from Gaza of injuries from the Israeli strike.

The rocket fire came despite a ceasefire that came into force after a spasm of violence that followed a militant attack in Eilat on August 18, which left eight Israelis dead.

Israel responded with a series of air strikes in Gaza, killing 26 Palestinians, and militant groups in the coastal enclave fired dozens of rockets into the Jewish state.
