GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli army tank fired an artillery shell at a Palestinian home east of Gaza City on Saturday morning, causing damage but no injuries, locals said.

The shell caused severe damage to the kitchen of Abu Hajjaj home in Shujaiyyeh neighborhood, according to eyewitnesses. The family members were all at home, but no injuries have been reported.

Meanwhile, the armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said it had fired four mortar shells towards the Nahal Oz military crossing east of Gaza city late Friday.

The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades said it was responding to Israeli military forces who crossed into the area.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said a projectile landed in the Negev on Friday, without causing injuries or damage. She was not familiar with the Israeli tank fire on Shujaiyyeh.
