An Israeli tank fired at a Hamas position on May 22 after Gazans infiltrated the Jewish state and torched a military post before returning to the Palestinian enclave, the army said. “A number of terrorists infiltrated into Israel and set a military post on fire. In response, an (Israeli) tank targeted an observation post belonging to the Hamas terror organisation in the southern Gaza Strip,” the army said in a statement.
The Israeli position was unmanned at the time, the army said, which could not confirm reports it was a sniper tent. There were no reports of casualties from Gaza. In a separate incident, a drone from northern Gaza landed in Israel overnight and was being “examined,” the army said.
