Haaretz: Mortar lands in Israel for first time since war, Hamas denies knowledge

From Haaretz - A mortar shell fired from the Gaza Strip landed in Israeli territory on Tuesday, the first time since the end of the recent war between Israel and the Palestinian factions in Gaza, the Israel Defense Forces confirmed.

There was no word of injuries or damages.

Hamas said it had no knowledge of any mortar attack on Israel and that the Palestinians factions remained committed to the truce.

The shell exploded in an open area near the Gaza border, opposite a town in the Eshkol Regional Council, Channel 2 reported.

Earlier on Tuesday, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon estimated that fighting would not resume with the Gaza Strip at the end of this month, despite the difficulties in reaching a permanent Israel-Hamas cease-fire agreement. more
