Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired rockets overnight Saturday, with at least two missiles striking inside Israel, an Israeli military spokesman wrote on Twitter.

There were no immediate reports of damage.

Tensions between Israel and the Palestinian territories have been high since the disappearance of three Israel youths in early June from a West Bank settler community.

The military has been targeting the Islamist movement Hamas since the suspected abductions, although no Palestinian group has claimed responsibility.
