Is­rael launches tank strike in Gaza

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

The Is­raeli army says a tank has fired at a tar­get in the north­ern Gaza Strip fol­low­ing an ex­plo­sion on the Pales­tinian side of the bor­der. The army said it is try­ing to de­ter­mine the source of the ex­plo­sion, which took place yes­ter­day. Ear­lier, a tank fired into Gaza af­ter a mor­tar shell was launched to­ward Is­raeli forces near the south­ern Gaza Strip. The Is­rael army said no sol­diers were harmed, and there were no im­me­di­ate re­ports of ca­su­al­ties on the Pales­tinian side fol­low­ing the strike. Is­rael and Gaza’s Is­lamic mil­i­tant Ha­mas rulers have largely ob­served a cease­fire since a 50-day war in 2014, but other mil­i­tant groups also op­er­ate in Gaza. Is­rael holds Ha­mas re­spon­si­ble for any at­tacks out of the ter­ri­tory. The tank strike comes just a day af­ter the Is­rael army de­mol­ished the home of Pales­tinian Zaid Amer in West Bank city of Nablus. The Is­raeli army claimed Amer is a mem­ber of a Ha­mas cell that shot dead a US cou­ple in the Is­raeli set­tle­ment of Ne­ria as they were driv­ing home last Oc­to­ber.
