Israel hits Hamas posts in Gaza in response to bombs

Israel hits Hamas posts in Gaza in response to bombs

No injuries were reported.

The report concluded that the Israeli military's targeting and internal investigations complied with its obligations under worldwide law, with Haaretz noting that "many of its conclusions read like a rebuttal to global criticism of Israeli actions in the Strip during the war".

In 2014, Israel waged a devastating 51-day military onslaught on the Gaza Strip in which more than 2,300 Palestinians were killed - the vast majority of them civilians - and tens of thousands injured.

Ma'an reported that the Israeli artillery fired at least four shells at a Hamas training site east of the Shajaiya neighborhood in Gaza City, while targeting another site near the town of Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip.

Israeli Cabinet minister Zeev Elkin said that 'we are witnessing an attempt to fan the flames in the south, ' in an interview with Israeli public radio, and that he held Islamic Jihad or one of the smaller militant organisations in Gaza to be responsible for the explosions, not Hamas. In retaliation, the IDF attacked five Hamas positions using tanks, and fired airstrikes at a sixth position. Last month four soldiers were injured, two seriously, by IEDs detonated near the border.

During a violent protest, members of the Palestinian Popular Resistance Committees umbrella terrorist group approached the border fence and placed a Palestinian flag on it.

It should be noted that there were no casualties in this morning's incident, and that the IDF Spokesperson's Unit stated that the forces responded by firing with a tank at Hamas positions.

Israel warplanes attacked 18 "terror targets belonging to Hamas" in Gaza in response to the blast, which severely wounded two of the soldiers, and a subsequent Palestinian rocket attack on southern Israel.
