Gaza terrorists fire mortar shell at soldiers on border, IDF returns fire

Hamas terrorists in Gaza fired a mortar shell at an IDF unit carrying out operational work on the Gaza border fence on Wednesday.

An IDF tank carried out return fire at a Hamas position in the area, the military said.

There were no injuries among IDF soldiers.

The incident marked the second straight day in which terrorists in Gaza fired at IDF soldiers on the border.

The previous day’s attack targeted soldiers on the border with northern Gaza. There were no injuries in that incident, which came hours after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made an unannounced visit to the area.
