Walid al-Umari, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Palestine, said the Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement, had claimed responsibility for firing the rockets on Tuesday.
The Israeli army said that two rockets were fired on Tuesday morning from Gaza and landed near the city of Askalan.
Israeli sources had recently urged authorities to launch strikes on resistance forces in the Gaza Strip if they continued to fire rockets at Israeli targets, al-Umari said.
The attacks came shortly before Israel's high court delayed the release of the first official report on the state's conduct during the Lebanon war, giving a respite to Ehud Olmert, Israel's prime minister. alJazeera more..
