Israeli soldiers fired, on Wednesday at noon, an artillery shell into a site run by the Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, east of Beit Hanoun town, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip. The army said it was retaliating to a shell fried from Gaza.

The shell into the Qassam site caused property damage but no injuries, media sources in Gaza said.

Several Israeli surveillance drones were also seen flying over different parts of the coastal region.

The Israeli army said the bombarded took place after a shell was fired from Gaza into Sderot town, in the Negev.

Israeli Ynet News said the shell caused no property damage, while a 15-year-old girl and a 60-year-old man “were treated for shock before they were moved to Barzelai Medical Center in Ashkelon.”

Earlier Wednesday, the Israeli army and navy opened fire on Palestinian fishers in Gaza territorial waters, and farmers in their lands, in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Also Wednesday, the soldiers invaded several districts in the occupied West Bank, broke into and searched many homes and kidnapped nine Palestinians.
