A 60-year-old woman reportedly died from IDF tank fire on Thursday, east of Khan Younis. Another person was lightly injured as the IDF returned fire against Hamas mortar attacks on troops operating on the Gaza border. 
 
The woman was buried in the Gaza Strip on Thursday evening, where participants engaged in mass protests.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad threatened the Israeli communities adjacent to the Strip immediately after the funeral. The Israeli security cabinet, headed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, will meet tomorrow morning at the Kirya in Tel Aviv following the escalation in the south.
