An Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle has fired a missile into the north of the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to witnesses quoted by AFP the attack targeted a Hamas training camp which was empty at the time, leaving no casualties.

Israeli airstrikes targeted the northern Gaza Strip on Monday, Israel's army said, in the first airstrike on Gaza in over two months.

The Israeli army claims the missile attack was in response to several rockets and mortars launched at the occupied territories in the past 24 hours.
The Gaza Strip has been under a severe economic blockade imposed by Israel since 2007.

The blockade has severely limited the imports and exports of the Gaza Strip and has led to frequent humanitarian crises and hardship for Gazans.
