Israeli aircrafts pounded several sites in the Gaza Strip early on Tuesday, with no causalities being reported.
Eyewitnesses said an Israeli airstrike destroyed a blacksmith workshop in Al-Tuffah district in eastern Gaza City, inflicting damages on adjacent homes.
Israeli fighter jets also hit areas west of Khan Younis city.
Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qodra told Anadolu Agency no injuries had been reported.
On Monday, at least four Palestinians, including two children, were injured when Israeli aircrafts struck several areas in the coastal enclave.
The Israeli army radio said the Monday's raids came in response to the firing of four rockets into the southern city of Ashkelon from Gaza, which caused no damage or casualties.
Tension has been running high in the Palestinian territories since three teenage Jewish settlers went missing late Thursday in the West Bank.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused Hamas of abducting the trio, a claim Hamas has since dismissed as "stupid."
No Palestinian group has claimed responsibility for the alleged kidnapping thus far.
Israeli naval forces on Monday opened fire on Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of the Gaza Strip.
"Israeli gunboats opened fire toward a group of Palestinian fishermen south of the Gaza Strip," Nizar Ayash, the head of Gaza's Palestinian Fishermen's Union, told Anadolu Agency.
No casualties were reported.
The attack, however, left three fishing boats with minor damage.
Israel allows fishing up to six miles off the Gaza coast.
When it first imposed its blockade on the Gaza Strip in 2006, Israel had allowed a three-nautical-mile fishing zone for Palestinian fishermen.
Gaza fishermen say the measures have adversely impacted their traditional business. They complain that their annual hauls have since fallen from pre-blockade levels of some 4000 tons of fish to a current 1500 tons.
Of the Gaza Strip's roughly 1.8 million inhabitants, about 40,000 earn their living from fishing, according to the Palestinian Fishermen's Union.
A Palestinian youth was seriously injured on Monday in clashes with Israeli forces in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
Yazn Yaacob was shot during clashes between Palestinian residents and Israeli forces at the Qalandia checkpoint, a medical source told Anadolu Agency.
Tension has mounted in the Palestinian territories since three Jewish settlers went missing last Thursday.
In the early hours of Monday, Israeli forces killed a young Palestinian man in the Jalazone refugee camp near Ramallah, the first reported fatality since the trio of settlers went missing.
Israeli forces in the West Bank detained scores of Palestinians on Sunday and Monday, including dozens of former Hamas-affiliated government ministers and lawmakers, in connection with the settlers' absence.
