The Israeli Army fired missiles targeting several areas in the besieged Gaza Strip after the missile interception system observed the launch of three shells that did not make it across the perimeter fence and one that the Iron Dome downed.

The Army said the Iron Dome missiles interception system managed to down one projectile reportedly fired from Gaza.

It added that three projectiles, reportedly fired from Gaza, did not make it across the perimeter fence and landed in an open area close to it.

Damage was also reported to some homes in Sderot across the perimeter fence in the western Negev.

Furthermore, the army claimed it targeted an underground facility used by the Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, to manufacture and assemble shells in central Gaza Strip.

According to Israeli sources, missile siren systems were sounded shortly after nine at night, especially in the colonies of Kissufim, Nirim, and Ha’shlosha.

Israeli military and security officials said they believe the Islamic Jihad was behind the shells firing in retaliation to the death of Farouq Salama, one of its fighters who was assassinated in Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank. During the attack, the soldiers also killed a child, Samer Khallouf, 14.

The Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, said the Army fired missiles into one of its centers near the main entrance of the Al-Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza.

Earlier Thursday, the soldiers killed two Palestinians, Amer Halabiyya, 20, from Beit Hanina, and Daoud Mahmoud Rayyan, 42, from Beit Duqqu, near occupied Jerusalem.

A day earlier, on November 2nd, the soldiers killed Habes Abdul-Hafith Rayyan, 54, after shooting him at a military roadblock west of Ramallah in the central part of the occupied West Bank.
