Monday's attack in Dimona was the first suicide bombing in Israel in over a year.
A short time after Tuesday's airstrike, Palestinian militants in Gaza fired several Qassam rockets into Israel, one of them striking a house in Sderot and injuring two people, Israeli emergency medical sources said. Neither person was seriously injured.
