A group Palestinian armed resistance fighters exchanged fire, Sunday, with Israeli soldiers invading the eastern area of Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.The military vehicles advanced approximately 40 meters near the Shuhada Graveyard, and fired rounds of live ammunition targeting fighters on a monitoring post, close to the border.

The fighters exchanged fire with the invading soldiers for more than fifteen minutes, before the army withdrew; no casualties reported.

Israel claimed a number of Palestinians crossed the border fence, but the claim was never verified; the fighters said the claim aims at justifying the ongoing Israeli invasions and violations.

On Thursday, September 10, Israeli navy ships opened fire on a number of Palestinian fishing boats, close to the shore in the Sudaniyya Sea, northwest of Gaza city.
