Israeli forces open fire after northern Gaza explosion

GAZA (Ma'an) -- An explosive device was detonated on the Gaza border on Thursday evening in an attack apparently targeting patrolling Israeli soldiers, the Israeli military said.

The explosion occurred east of Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip, and Israeli forces subsequently opened fire in the area after the explosion.

Witnesses said the incident occurred near the eastern cemetery in Jabaliya.

Spokesman for the Gaza Strip Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qidra said that no injuries arrived in any hospitals.

The events come a day after Israeli forces bombed the northern Gaza Strip, injuring twelve Palestinians during a strike that took place as Hamas and Fatah announced a major reconciliation deal.

Palestinian militant groups on the ground responded by firing three rockets into Israel, which landed without causing any injuries or damage.
