JERUSALEM, Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- Israel's military said on Monday that it attacked with artillery a Hamas post in the Gaza Strip after gunshots were fired toward Israeli troops near the Palestinian enclave.
A military spokesperson said in a statement that the post, east of the al-Buriej refugee camp in central Gaza, was demolished.
In the morning, shots were fired from Gaza, causing no injuries to the Israeli soldiers, who according to the spokesperson were carrying out maintenance works along the security fence around the besieged Palestinian enclave.
Israel's last military campaign in Gaza ended in July 2014 after 51 days of war. Since then, frequent fire incidents occur on both sides of the border but have never evolved into a full-blown war.
