Israel strikes Hamas targets in Gaza Strip

Israel strikes Hamas targets in Gaza Strip

The Israel Air Force struck targets in the northern Gaza Strip yesterday, the Israeli army said.

According to the statement, Israeli fighter jets bombed several targets at a Hamas training camp.

"The strike was executed following earlier strikes during the day and in response to the shooting incidents against our forces," Haaretz cited the statement as saying.

Two fire exchanges took place along the border after a period of relative calm. In the afternoon, the Israeli military said it shelled a Hamas observation post after an Israeli officer was injured.

The Israeli military retaliated by striking a Hamas post in Gaza, an attack that injured two and claimed the life of a 24-year-old Palestinian. 

Earlier in the day, the Israel Defense Forces struck a Hamas post in the northern Strip in response to Palestinian fire.
