Israel shells northern Gaza

Dec. 28, 2011 5:57 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 30, 2011 1:58 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli tank fired on northern Gaza on Wednesday, without causing damage or injuries.

Forces launched an artillery shell which landed in an open area in the north of the coastal strip, a Ma'an reporter said.

An Israeli army spokesman said he was not familiar with the incident.

The blast followed two Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip on Tuesday evening, which killed one man and wounded ten others, as the coastal enclave marked the third anniversary of the Gaza war.

Israel launched a three week war on the Gaza Strip on Dec. 27, 2008.

Nearly 1,400 Palestinians were killed in the military assault, including over 300 children. The majority of those killed were civilians.
