According to Israeli sources, three shells fired from the Gaza Strip hit areas inside Israel on Sunday afternoon. Two of the shells allegedly hit near populated areas. The third hit in the western Negev desert, far from any populated area. The shells fired by Palestinian fighters are crude and lacking in any explosive capability. There is also no way for the fighters to aim the shells, which are fired blindly across the border with Israel into the one Israeli town built provocatively close to the sealed border with the imprisoned Gaza Strip.

Israeli sources stated that one of the shells hit near a schoolbus. No injuries were reported in any of the strikes.
