Israeli forces fired artillery shells at military towers belonging to the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, in the blockaded Gaza Strip.
The attack took place in Gaza’s eastern Shuja’iyya district on Wednesday, the Palestinian Information Center reported.
The al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, responded to the assault by hitting an Israeli bulldozer with mortars near the same district in the coastal sliver.
An unnamed Palestinian security source confirmed the Israeli raid, saying that two shells were fired at a site under the control of the Interior Ministry which caused damage but no casualties.
Meanwhile, Israeli sources claimed that two of their patrol vehicles were targeted with mortars and explosive devices early on Wednesday on the border between the besieged coastal enclave and the occupied territories.
The alleged Palestinian attacks left no Israelis injured, but caused damage, the Israeli sources added, Press TV reported.
The Israeli army tanks also fired at a target in the Palestinian enclave, according to reports.
