(CNN) -- Palestinian militants claimed to have fired 20 mortar rounds from Gaza into Israel in retaliation for a strike that wounded 11 people.

The Israel Defense Force said Sunday's strike targeted two members of a Gaza-based jihad network who were suspected in a June attack that left an Israeli Arab citizen dead.

Two militants and nine civilians, including six children, when a rocket hit a motorcycle in Rafah, a town on the Gaza-Egypt border, Ashraf al-Qidra, a Gaza health ministry spokesman said.

The IDF, meanwhile, said it targeted terror operations in southern Gaza on Monday following another round of mortars.

The IDF said it responded to the rockets by launching tank shells, though a ministry of health official in Gaza said it was an airstrike.

On the Israeli side, there were no injuries and only minor property damage reported in the barrage, said Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld.

Al-Qidra said five people were wounded in Monday's strike.
