Hamas sets up tents near Gaza border ahead of…

An Israeli tank near the border with Syria

"We don't know who sent them and what their goal was", an army spokeswoman told AFP.

Flaming streams of about 10 Iron Dome rockets could be seen rising into the night sky in a spectacular light show, but there was no indication that Islamist militants in Gaza had fired rockets, a military spokeswoman said.

AN Israeli tank struck two Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip late yesterday after bullets were fired from the Palestinian enclave, the Israeli army said.

Palestinian security sources said there had been no casualties.

All major Palestinian factions have endorsed the planned march, during which demonstrators will converge en masse on the Gaza Strip's roughly 45-kilometer-long eastern border with Israel.

"No salvo was sacked at territory in the State of Israel".

The army said it was investigating why the systems turned on, but said "unusual machine gun fire towards Israel was identified". -Gen. Ronen Manlis said in a statement.

Israeli forces have pounded the Palestinian town of Beit Lahia after dozens of rocket sirens sounded in southern Israel following light artillery fire from a drill carried out by Hamas' military arm in the northern Gaza Strip.

During the Gaza war in 2014, Iron Dome interceptors largely protected Israel's heartland from thousands of incoming rockets fired by Gaza militants.

Earlier on Tuesday, clerics in the Gaza Strip expressed their support for a demonstration organized by Hamas on the border fence and in recent days, Hamas bulldozers have prepared the ground for the construction of hundreds of tents near the border.

IDF raids on a Hamas site in Rafah took place just after the group entered into Israeli territory and made efforts to destroy military machinery being used to construct a new anti-terror tunnel barrier between Israel and Gaza.
