Israeli occupation F16 struck on Friday vegetables farms in besieged Gaza Strip after alleged rocket fired into Israeli territory from the coastal enclave.
Sources of the Israeli army claimed that the bombings came in response to a missile launched from the coastal enclave that landed in an Israeli settlement.
The sources said that the Israeli army used “tanks and aircraft to hit Hamas military positions in the northern Gaza Strip.”
However, eyewitnesses in Gaza said that the Israeli artillery fire had struck a vegetable farm near a “watching tower” belonging to the national security forces which guards the borders.
Earlier Friday, the Israeli army claimed it had intercepted two rockets fired from Gaza, while a third had fallen to earth without causing damage in an Israeli settlement near the Gaza border.
According to Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth, air-raid sirens were sounded in the border settlements of Sdot Negev and Shaar Hanegev.
Tension has mounted in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip since US President Donald Trump’s December 6 decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
