No casualties were reported.
Israel launched airstrikes against Gaza late Monday after rockets were fired against Jewish settlements. In addition to the four martyred, nine others were injured.
The Israeli army said 300 rockets were fired from Gaza since Monday but the country’s air defense system, Iron Dome, intercepted 60 with most of the rest falling on empty land.
Rockets fired from Gaza injured 29 Israelis, including a reported Israeli soldier who sustained heavy injuries.
