Several Israeli tanks fired, on Sunday at dawn, a number of artillery shells into Palestinian farmlands in Beit Lahia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Media sources in Gaza said the shells caused damage, while many children in several nearby homes suffered anxiety attacks.

They added that Israeli drones were also heavily flying over different parts of the Gaza Strip, especially close to border areas.

The Israeli army said it “struck a Hamas site,” reportedly after military vehicles came under fire while patrolling the border area, in northern Gaza.
