An IDF Engineering vehicle was struck by multiple rounds fired from Gaza, the army reported on Sunday.

The incident occurred on the border between Israel and southern Gaza, where soldiers heard gunfire, and discovered the rounds lodged in the vehicle, which was near the border fence. There were no injuries in the incident.

It was the second time in recent days of cross-border gunfire.

Gunfire originating from the Gaza Strip struck an IDF vehicle on Friday afternoon during a military patrol of the border region between Israel and the southern Strip. Soldiers reported hearing gunfire during the patrol, and discovered a bullet lodged in the vehicle.

There were no injuries. "We are examining this incident," the IDF Spokesman Unit said.
