Israel fires shell at eastern Gaza after shots hit army vehicle

Israeli forces fired a tank shell at eastern Gaza on Thursday after shots hit an army vehicle patrolling the border area, Israel's army said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said shots were fired at an Israeli army vehicle during a "routine patrol," damaging the vehicle but causing no injuries.

A tank responded by firing a shell into Gaza.

The shelling is the most serious incident along the Gaza border since a Palestinian man was shot and killed on Sunday while hunting birds east of Jabaliya.

Fadil Muhammad Halawah, 32, was the first Palestinian to be killed by Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip since the signing of a ceasefire agreement in late August, ending 50 days of violence which killed over 2,000 Palestinians. more
