The Israeli Air Force fired, on Thursday at dawn, a number of missiles into several areas, believed to be run by the Al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas, in different parts of the Gaza Strip.
Some of the missiles detonated in open lands in a Qassam site, in the Shaimaâ€™ area, northwest of Beit Lahia in the northern part of the Gaza Strip. The Al-Qassam Brigades said the missiles caused property damage, and fires, but did not lead to any casualties.
A second strike also targeted a Qassam center in the Shaimaâ€™ area, northwest of Beit Lahia, causing excessive damage.
A third strike targeted another Qassam center in the Shejaâ€™eyya neighborhood, east of Gaza City, causing damage.
The Israeli army said it targeted the Qassam centers in Gaza after a mortar shell landed in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council, on Wednesday evening, and that the shell caused no casualties or property damage.
