IDF soldiers retaliated against Gaza’s Hamas rulers Wednesday night for their machine gunfire barrage aimed at IDF troops that reached the southern Israeli city of Sderot, less than a mile from the Gaza border.
An IDF tank shelled two Hamas military posts in the southern area of the Gaza Strip. There were no casualties reported among the IDF troops.

Heavy machine gun fire hit four Jewish homes in the Gaza Belt city of Sderot on Wednesday afternoon. Miraculously no injuries were reported; the bullets were big enough, and deadly enough to penetrate the window frames of the homes and twist them like butter.
