Israeli forces have launched artillery attacks on alleged Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.

(presstv) -- No casualties have been reported from the Sunday night attacks.

Israel claims that the attacks were launched is response to rocket fire from the Gaza Strip that landed without causing any injuries.    

The Israeli military frequently targets the Gaza Strip, with civilians being the main victims of such attacks. 

Israel has launched several wars on the Palestinian coastal sliver, the last of which began in early July 2014. The military aggression, which ended on August 26, 2014, killed nearly 2,200 Palestinians. Over 11,100 others were also wounded in the war.    

The Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli siege since June 2007. The blockade has caused a decline in living standards as well as unprecedented unemployment and poverty.
