Israel, Hamas exchange mortar fire across norther Gaza border

Nov. 30, 2017 5:34 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 1, 2017 2:48 P.M.)
GAZA (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces fired four mortar shells at alleged Hamas military posts in the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday, following claims by the army that several shells had been fired from inside the Gaza Strip at an Israeli military post along the border.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that “a number of mortar rounds were fired at an Israeli military post adjacent to the northern Gaza Strip,” and that no Israeli injuries were reported.

“In response...Israeli tanks and aircrafts targeted four Hamas military posts in the northern Gaza Strip,” the spokesperson said, adding that “the Israeli army holds Hamas responsible for any hostile activity perpetrated against Israel from the Gaza Strip.”

No injuries among Palestinians were reported.

Hebrew media had reported that 15 mortar shells were fired from inside Gaza at Israeli “engineering structures” working near the Gaza Strip to locate tunnels being used by fighters inside Gaza.

Meanwhile, Israeli trains between the Ashkelon and Sderot in southern Israel, near Gaza, were reportedly halted and Israeli farmers were instructed to evacuate their lands.
