Israeli tanks opened fire in an attack on an outpost of the Hamas terrorist organization in central Gaza Monday afternoon. Three artillery shells were fired at the observation tower near Al-Bureijj, sources said.
The attack came in retaliation for gunfire aimed at Israeli soldiers earlier in the day as they carried out routine work on the border fence with southern Gaza.
Farmers who were working their fields within a mile of the site of the attack were immediately told to evacuate the area.
No injuries were reported on either side.
