On Tuesday evening, the Israeli army fired missiles into an area close to the perimeter fence, east of Beit Hanoun, in the northeastern part of the Gaza Strip, causing five injuries.

Medical sources said five Palestinians were rushed to Beit Hanoun Hospital in northern Gaza, suffering shrapnel wounds from Israeli missiles.

The army also fired several shells into two sites, believed to be run by armed resistance groups, east of Gaza City and east of Khan Younis in southern Gaza.

Israeli sources said three Israelis were injured by homemade shells allegedly fired from the Gaza Strip and claimed that Palestinian factions in Gaza fired 22 shells.

They added that the shells were fired after the army “fired missiles in retaliation for shells reportedly fired earlier from Gaza.”

The latest developments came in the aftermath of the death of political prisoner Khader Adnan, who died in an Israeli prison after 87 days of hunger strike, protecting his Administrative Detention without charges.
