Palestinian resistance fighters say they have shot down an Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle in the north of the Gaza Strip.
Also on Sunday, Palestinian sources announced that an Israeli military vessel had been hit by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip.
Palestinian fighters also downed an Israeli F-16 fighter jet flying over the Gaza Strip on Friday, as retaliatory rocket attacks from the enclave continue to sound alarms across Israel.
Rockets fired from Gaza on Sunday landed in Israel’s southern cities of Eshkol, Ashdod, Kiryat Malakhi and Ashkelon.
Israel's Iron Dome missile shield has intercepted only 267, out of a total of 774, Palestinian rockets and missiles.
Israel has pounded the Gaza Strip 1,000 times since Wednesday, according to Israeli media.
At least 51 Palestinians have been killed and more than 500 others wounded since the beginning of the recent Israeli attacks against the Gaza Strip. Many women and children are among the casualties.
