Israeli army tank fires at Hamas post in Gaza

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli army tank targeted a "Hamas post" in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, shortly after shots were fired from the besieged Gaza Strip and hit an Israeli military vehicle at around 11 a.m. on Sunday, with no injuries reported, according to the Israeli army.

The Israeli army has previously said it holds the Hamas movement -- the de facto rulers of the Gaza Strip -- responsible for all attacks from the territory, although other Palestinian militant groups are active in the small coastal enclave.

While armed groups inside the Gaza Strip occasionally fire rockets inside Israel, Israeli army incursions inside the Palestinian territory have long been a near daily occurrence, as the Israeli army regularly opens fire on Palestinian fishermen and farmers along the border areas, despite a ceasefire agreement that ended the 2014 war.

A similar incident occurred last month, when Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinians east of al-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip, causing no injuries, after shots were fired at Israeli forces.
