Israel strikes Gaza Strip after gunfire from enclave: Statement

The Israeli military said on Tuesday it launched attacks on a situation related to the Hamas movement in the Gaza Strip after a barrage of gunfire from a Palestinian enclave.

“Following the firing of a single bullet into Israel from the Gaza Strip, the IDF (military) is currently attacking a Hamas military post in the northern Gaza Strip,” the military said in a statement.

It added on Twitter that “fighter jets” were carrying out the attack.

“Earlier today (Tuesday), a bullet was found in the community of Native Hasra,” the military statement said, referring to an Israeli farming community along Gaza’s northern border.

“After investigation, it was found that the bullet hit an industrial building today after being fired from the Gaza Strip,” the military said.

An eyewitness told AFP in Gaza’s Beit Hanoun area that he had witnessed several attacks on a security site controlled by Hamas.

The military said the latest attacks came after Israeli warplanes targeted a Hamas site in the Gaza Strip over the weekend.

The exchange of fire came hours after US President Joe Biden visited Israel and the occupied West Bank.

“The military site has an underground complex in which raw materials are used to manufacture rockets,” the Israeli military said on Saturday.

The weekend strike would “significantly disrupt and weaken Hamas’s force-building capabilities,” it said, adding that Israel was responding to “attacks from the Gaza Strip on Israeli territory”.

Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem condemned Saturday’s attacks, with the official Palestinian news agency WAFA saying there were no casualties.

WAFA said Israeli missiles were fired at two locations, one “near a tourist site”, where nearby houses were badly damaged.

On Friday night, the Israeli side had two separate launches, each carrying two rockets, the military said.
