Three Palestinians wounded in Israeli shelling on Gaza

Why Is A 'Pro-Israel' Group Lobbying To Preserve Payouts To Terrorists? Congress must approve bill that ends stipends for terrorists

The Israeli military said on Twitter it had targeted two Hamas posts in northern Gaza on Tuesday night in retaliation for a "projectile" hitting an open area of land in southern Israel.

The rocket landed in an open area, believed to be a building site, without causing casualties.

Fierce clashes broke out between dozens of young Palestinians and Israeli forces after the latter raided Al-Dugeisheh refugee camp in Bethlehem city overnight, the sources said. Although no group has claimed responsibility for the rocket attack, Israel holds Hamas responsible for any rockets being fired from Gaza. Three injuries were reported، one of them critical، due to a fracture in the skull. Hamas issued a statement saying that, "with this attack Israel has crossed a unsafe red line and will suffer the consequences". "We will not allow Gaza to be turned into a testing field for Israeli ammunition".

The Israeli side usually blames the Palestinian Hamas movement, which rules the Gaza Strip, for the attacks carried out from the territory of the Gaza Strip.

Despite the tensions over Jerusalem's Temple Mount this summer, there have been only a few instances of rocket fire from Gaza landing in Israel.
