Israel shells Hamas site in Gaza after 'infiltration' reported

July 21, 2018 12:31 P.M. (Updated: July 28, 2018 2:22 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Israeli artillery shelled a resistance site in the Malaka area in eastern Gaza City in the central besieged Gaza Strip on Saturday morning.

A Ma'an reporter said that one shell was fired at the site, and no injuries were reported.

The shelling comes hours after a ceasefire was reached between Israel and Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip following a violent night.

Several Palestinian youths had managed earlier Saturday to cross the Israeli security fence in the same area of eastern Gaza City; they entered an Israeli military site and seized military equipment before returning back to the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, the Israeli army reported that the shelling comes in response to the “infiltration” carried out by the Palestinian youths.
