BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A mortar fired from the besieged Gaza Strip hit an Israeli bus in an Israeli community surrounding Gaza, on Monday, critically injuring one Israeli.

According to Hebrew-language news outlet, a mortar was fired from Gaza and directly hit an Israeli bus, critically injuring a 19-year-old Israeli soldier.

No other injuries were reported yet.

The Israeli army activated the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepting several rockets. In addition, rocket sirens were sounded throughout Israeli communities surrounding Gaza, including Beer Sheva, Ashkelon and Sderot.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes across the northern Gaza Strip, targeting a Hamas movement military site.

Israeli warplanes also targeted a group of Palestinian youths by the security border fence along the Gaza border.

No injuries were reported in neither of the incidents.

Israeli media also reported that more than 80 mortar shells were fired towards Israeli communities surrounding Gaza.

On Sunday, Israeli warplanes carried out a campaign of airstrikes across the southern besieged Gaza Strip, killing seven members of the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas movement, including a senior member.
