|Exchange of fire between Gaza and Israel
|(about 11 hours later)
|Palestinian militants in Gaza have fired a missile across the border into Israel for the second time in two days.
|Hours earlier the Israeli military carried out air strikes in Gaza.
|This was the first such strike since a ceasefire ended the short war between Israel and Hamas in November last year.
|There were no injuries from the Israeli strike nor the Palestinian rocket fire, but Israeli defence Minister Moshe Yaalon said Israel would not allow such firing to become routine.
|Overnight Israeli planes bombed open land in Northern Gaza. Israel said it was responding to Palestinian rocket fire on Tuesday.
|Palestinian militants fired a second rocket on Wednesday morning.
|Sirens sounded in the Israeli town of Sderot warning of incoming rockets and forcing residents to take cover.
|A BBC correspondent in Gaza, Jon Donnison, says neither Israel nor Hamas are thought to want another escalation in violence but it is a reminder the ceasefire is fragile and that the underlying conflict remains.
|Some will fear this could be the start of a familiar cycle of retaliatory attacks from both sides, our correspondent adds.
|More than 160 Palestinians and 6 Israelis were killed in 8 days of fighting last November.
|The United Nations says four Palestinians have been killed by Israeli military action in Gaza since the ceasefire was declared.
