Palestinian media reports say Hamas members are launching anti-aircraft missiles at Israeli aircraft over the Gaza Strip amid ongoing airstrikes.

The shoulder-launched missiles are not thought to pose a threat to Israeli fighter jets, although they have set off incoming rocket siren alarms in southern Israel in the past.

The strikes are being conducted following recent rocket attacks from Gaza, as well as a rocket barrage from Lebanon, which has also been blamed on Hamas.
