Israeli soldiers fired, on Saturday at dawn, several shells into Palestinian agricultural lands, in the northern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Media sources in Gaza said the soldiers, stationed in military bases across the border fence, fired the shells into land, close to the border area, in Beit Lahia, and added that the attack did not lead to any casualties.

Israeli sources claimed the shelling was carried out after a shell was fired from Gaza, and landed in an open area in the Regional Council in Asqalan.
