As Stand for Israel told you earlier today, the Israeli military has responded to rocket attacks from Gaza by striking Hamas terror targets. Now, The Times of Israel's Judah Ari Gross reports, another mortar has been fired from Gaza into Israel's Eshkol region:

An IDF tank attacked a Hamas outpost in the southern Gaza Strip on Thursday in response to a mortar shell fired at southern Israel earlier in the day, the army said.

Reports within the Gaza Strip also indicated that Israeli forces struck a site in central Gaza, east of the Bureij refugee camp, though that was not immediately confirmed by the IDF.

There were no immediate reports of Palestinian injuries.

Earlier in the day, a mortar shell fired from Gaza struck an open field in the Eshkol region, the army said.

It was the second such attack by Palestinians in two days.
