Israeli Jets Strike Hamas Post in Gaza In Response To Gunfire

The Israeli Army on Tuesday launched airstrikes, targeting Hamas movement in Gaza Strip in response to gunfire at the border.

“A bullet was fired from Gaza into southern Israel and hit an industrial building in the community of Netiv HaAsara earlier today,” Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a tweet.

“Following the firing, Israel Air Forces (IAF) fighter jets are currently striking a Hamas military post in northern Gaza,” it added.  There were no immediate reports of any possible casualties.

Over the weekend, four rockets were fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip. The latest one was on Monday when Israeli claimed it had intercepted a drone that crossed from Lebanese territory.  

On July 15, Israeli warplanes targeted a Hamas site in the Gaza Strip in response to rocket fire from the enclave.

The army at that time said that they had targeted one of Hamas most “significant rocket production” sites in Gaza, and the strike would considerably impede Hamas’ force-building capabilities.

The army vowed to continue to defend Israeli civilians from Hamas’ terrorism.
