No injuries or damage were reported in the attack.

On Thursday, an IDF soldier was lightly injured by an improvised explosive device that blew up near his tank while along the border with the Strip. The soldier was evacuated to Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba with light shrapnel wounds.

The attack followed an Israel Air Force strike on a terror tunnel in northern Gaza overnight Tuesday. Gaza sources said there were no casualties.

Prior to the IAF operation, two Palestinians were killed after aircraft bombed a Global Jihad terror cell preparing to launch a rocket in central Gaza.
