IDF Retaliates with Tank Fire for Gaza Rockets; No Injuries

08 December 2017

Gaza: A tank and an aircraft targeted two military posts in the Gaza Strip, following projectiles that was sacked from the northern Gaza Strip and exploded in southern Israel, according to a statement made by Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) on Thursday.

At around 6:30 pm sirens sounded in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council in the northwestern Negev.

This latest report from the region comes after U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

In Wednesday night's raid, Israeli security forces also apprehended several Palestinians suspected of inciting terrorism and brought them in for questioning with the Israel Police.

Miami will also send $1 million in worldwide slot money, which the Mariners could use to entice Japanese pitcher Shohei Ohtani. Gordon, 29, hit a robust.308 with an NL-best 60 stolen bases and 114 runs scored for the Marlins last season.

Throughout the day on Thursday, Palestinians in Gaza marched, waved Palestinian flags and burned photographs of Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as Israeli and American flags.

Around two hours later the army said that another rocket, fired form the enclave's north, exploded in southern Israel.

Last week, the Islamic Jihad launched a dozen mortar shells at an army post northeast of the Strip, causing no injuries but some damage to army equipment.

In response to rocket fire earlier on Thursday evening, the IDF fired on Hamas targets in central Gaza.
