Israel strikes Gaza after a missile was fired across the border says Army

Vastavam web: Israel struck a position of Islamist group Hamas in Gaza today, the army said, hours after a missile was fired across the border from the Palestinian enclave.”An (Israeli) tank targeted a post belonging to the Hamas terror organisation in the southern Gaza Strip” in the early hours of the morning, the army said in a statement. The source said separate strikes hit farming land in central Gaza, with no injuries reported in either incident.

The Israeli strike came hours after a “projectile fired from the Gaza Strip” hit an open area inside Israel without causing any injuries, the army said.Since the last one in 2014, a fragile ceasefire has been observed along the largely closed border. Missiles and rockets are periodically fired at Israel, generally by hardline Islamist groups opposed to Hamas.
