An Israeli warplane on Tuesday evening fired a missile at a group of Islamic Jihad militants in northern Gaza Strip, the group said, adding that no injuries or casualties were reported.

The group said in a leaflet that its militants fired three homemade rockets from northern Gaza Strip at southern Israeli town Sderot. Israel confirmed the rocket attacks, but said causing no injuries or damages.

Earlier on Tuesday, the group has also claimed responsibility for launching four homemade rockets from northern Gaza Strip at the Israeli town. But Israel said that no injuries or damages were reported.

The group said the rocket attacks are in response to the death of an Islamic Jihad militant killed by Israeli army in northern West Bank city Jenin.

However, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who has instructed to reopen the Gaza Strip border crossings to allow fuels and humanitarian aid into Gaza, later changed his mind to re-close them following the rocket attacks.

On Dec. 19, a six-month truce brokered by Egypt between Israel and Gaza militant groups led by Hamas would expire with little evidence of renewing.

Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar in Gaza told reporters earlier that the Palestinians would only renew the truce with Israel, if the latter changes the terms of the truce and keep the border crossings open.
