An Israeli tank has shelled the southern part of the Gaza Strip as the Tel Aviv regime goes ahead with its acts of aggression against the besieged Palestinian coastal sliver.

The Israeli military announced in a statement on Thursday that the tank fire had struck and destroyed a purported military site belonging to the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, after shots were allegedly fired from the Gaza Strip at Israeli forces stationed near the border between the occupied territories and the enclave.

There were no initial reports of injury or damage in the incident.

The Tel Aviv regime’s latest assault against the Gaza Strip came more than a month after an Israeli combat drone struck an alleged military site in al-Sudaniyah district, completely destroying the building.

An Israeli F-16 fighter jet fired two missiles into the same area shortly afterward. No reports of casualties were reported though.

Meanwhile, a high-ranking Iraqi military figure says the Daesh extremists were only in control of four neighborhoods in the western part of Mosul.
