Israeli communities in close proximity to the border with Gaza were attacked by machine-gun fire Monday evening close to 8 p.m.
“Moments ago, following reports of sirens sounding in the city of Sderot and the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, heavy machine gunfire was identified emanating from the Gaza Strip towards Israel,” an IDF spokesman tweeted.
Thousands of residents ran for shelter at the sound of the Red Alert siren.
There were no injuries. Buildings and cars were damaged.
The incident occurred hours after IDF soldiers clashed with Hamas rioters at the security fence.
