IDF destroys Hamas target in response to fire from Gaza

Following through with its policy to respond to any provocation, the IDF destroyed a Hamas target following Palestinian cross-border fire.  

An IDF tank shelled and destroyed a Hamas military position in Gaza on Tuesday night shortly after Palestinian terrorists in Gaza fired at an IDF unit operating on the border fence.

There were no Israeli casualties in the incident.

The IDF views the Hamas terror organization as bearing sole responsibility for all incidents emanating from the Gaza Strip.

The border with Gaza has been fairly quiet in recent months. The last cross-border shooting incident before this one occurred a week ago, and before that there had not been an attack since mid-December.

Earlier on Tuesday, the IDF reported that its forces on the border with Lebanon came under fire. No one was injured in the incident.

The IDF did not respond to that incident and no one has taken responsibility for the shooting.
