GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces shelled Gaza east of Breij refugee camp late Friday, causing no injuries or damage, after Israel's army said two projectiles landed near Ashkelon.

One missile fell beside a house in Breij, locals said. There were no injuries.

An Israeli unit also infiltrated near Abu Samra north of Beit Lahiya, locals said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said Palestinians tried to plant an improvised explosive device targeting an Israeli patrol. "Hamas is accountable and will bear the consequence," she said on Twitter.

Israel's Ynet news site said Palestinian operatives shot rocket-propelled grenades at an army unit in Gaza, and detonated an explosive in an attempt to hurt the troops, who returned fire.

Earlier Israeli media said two projectiles landed near Ashkelon, causing no injuries.
