Israel fires mortar into Gaza after explosion injures soldier

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel launched a mortar into the Gaza Strip on Thursday after a soldier was lightly wounded by an explosion near the border, the Israeli military said.

The soldier was injured during "operational activity" in the southern Gaza Strip, the military said in a statement.

The incident comes in the final hours of a fragile six-hour humanitarian ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, which was proposed by a United Nations envoy the day before.

Since the beginning of hostilities in Gaza ten days ago, 230 Palestinians have been killed and more than 1,678 injured, while one Israeli has been killed and around five injured.
