Shots were fired at IDF soldiers engaged in a routine patrol near the Gaza security fence in Southern Israel. IDF tanks fired at two Hamas outposts in response to the shooting. According to Hamas reports, one of the organization’s observation posts in Beit Lahia was hit.

Earlier today, JOL reported that a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip late last night landed in Israel in an open field. No one was injured and no damage was reported. It was the fifth time in the last month that the quiet was disturbed in Southern Israel. Earlier today, IDF Intelligence chief Major General Herzi Halevi warned members of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that Gaza is on the verge of crisis, a reality that he says is likely to lead to a military escalation despite Hamas’ reluctance to disrupt the status quo.
