The Israeli military said tanks and aircraft fired at Hamas posts soon after its Iron Dome missile defense system downed two rockets fired from Gaza en-route to the south of the country.
Rocket sirens sounded shortly before midday (local time) in several communities near the Gaza border.
"A third rocket landed on a structure in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council in southern Israel", it added. No injuries were reported, but a building was damaged.
The incident was the latest round of escalation between Israel and the Palestinians, which was triggered by U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in a statement on December 6.
Jerusalem is considered a sacred place, which is home to Jewish, Christian and Muslim holy sites.
Israel's military said about 2,000 Palestinians rolled burning tires and threw rocks at soldiers stationed near the Gaza border and troops fired "selectively against four main instigators".
Rocket fire from Gaza had been on the rise following US President Donald Trump's decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, although the last two weeks have seen quiet return to the area.
Palestinians were enraged by Trump's declaration, viewing it as siding with Israel on the most sensitive issue in the conflict. Twelve Palestinians have died in the violence so far.
