An IDF soldier was lightly to moderately wounded after Palestinian gunmen opened fire at an army patrol doing engineering work on the border security fence in the northern Gaza Strip. The soldier was evacuated to the hospital for treatment.
Meanwhile, an IDF patrol operating in the Nahal Oz area shot and killed a Hamas gunman. Earlier, Palestinian sources reported at least 10 Palestinians injured in an Air Force (IAF) strike on a Hamas firing post in the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Lahiya early Friday morning. The sources said an infant was among those injured.
Palestinian sources also reported an IDF strike that occurred in the central Gaza Strip, but no injuries were reported.
The IDF stated that IAF jets struck a Hamas post and identified a direct hit. The statement said the strike came in retaliation to the mortar fire launched by Hamas from the Strip.
On Thursday morning Amnon Rosenberg of Kibbutz Nirim was killed by a mortar shell attack on a Nirlat Groups facility located in Nir Oz. Four others were wounded and evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba.
Palestinian doctors reported Thursday afternoon that a 4-year-old girl was killed and her mother wounded in an Israeli airstrike on the Gaza Strip. The army confirmed the strike and said forces had targeted a gunman in the area from which the mortar attack on Kibbutz Nir Oz was launched.
