GAZA CITY (AFP) -- Gaza militants fired on southern Israel on Tuesday, hours after the death in custody of a Palestinian who suffered from cancer, witnesses said.
Witnesses told AFP that militants in Gaza City had fired three mortar rounds on Israel.
The Israeli army initially said only one projectile had landed in Israel, without causing any casualties, but later issued a statement saying nothing had landed.
"It turns out that nothing fell on Israeli territories," a spokeswoman told AFP.
There was no claim of responsibility from the Palestinian side. more
