IDF ground forces fired a missile on the northern Gaza Strip Saturday, injuring two Palestinians, Hamas and hospital officials said.
The army said that troops in the area fired toward three Palestinian gunmen who were approaching the Israel-Gaza fence in the area of Beit Lahiya and identified hitting them.
The IDF frequently launches air and ground attacks against Palestinians suspected of firing rockets. Palestinians fire the rockets almost daily into southern Israel, disrupting life there, occasionally causing injuries and killing 12 Israelis in the past seven years.
