The IDF tank and aircraft attacked two Hamas military posts in Gaza in response to a short-ranged attack near the border on Friday according to the IDF.

There are no known casualties.  

All crossings to the West Bank and Gaza were closed to Palestinians beginning on Friday, April 19, following an assessment of the security situation. The border closure will last until the end of Passover, Saturday, April 27 at midnight with the exception of humanitarian, medical and exceptional cases approved by the IDF’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), the IDF said.
