Mortar Shells From Gaza Fired at IDF Forces; Israel Strikes Four Hamas Targets

Israel said it had targeted resistance sites in the norther Gaza Strip with a guided missile and a number or mortar shells this afternoon. There were no casualties, he said. However, The Israeli military later said the sirens were a false alarm. Later on Thursday evening, the army said it also had struck two "terror infrastructure targets".

According to the Gaza Health Ministry, three Gazans were lightly wounded in the Israeli bombing. Hamas and Israel have fought three wars since 2008, including one in 2014 in which Palestinians used tunnels as a way to launch attacks on Israel, according to The Washington Post.

While the Hamas terror group may have not carried out the attack, the IDF stated that it "views the Hamas terror group as responsible for all events that occur in Gaza", as it rules the Gaza Strip. Most of the dead were members of the terrorist organisation Islamic Jihad, which threatened retaliation. Palestinians face near daily fire from forces while tending to their farmland near the border with Israel and while fishing within the reduced fishing area.
