GAZA, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) — Israeli tanks stationed on the borders with central Gaza Strip struck an Islamic Hamas movement military post with shells after gunmen fired at Israeli army forces, security sources in Gaza said Tuesday.
The sources said that the shells hit a post that belongs to Hamas armed wing after the Israeli army announced that gunmen from Gaza fired at its forces patrolling the borderline area between central Gaza Strip and Israel.
The sources said no injuries were reported, however citizens live in the area said they heard two huge bombs.
Tension between the Israeli army and Gaza militant groups mounts as unknown militants fire rockets or open fire at Israeli army forces stationed on the borders. Israel usually fires back.
In 2014, Israel and Gaza Hamas-led militants had reached a ceasefire, brokered by Egypt, ending 50 days of a large-scale Israeli military air and ground offensive that killed 2,200 Palestinians and wounded 11,000 others.
