Israel strikes Hamas position in Gaza


An Israeli drone struck a Hamas position in the northern Gaza Strip Saturday night, according to the Israeli military on Sunday.

In a statement, the army said the attack targeted a position used to launch burning projectile into Israel.

There were no reports of casualties in the attack.

On Saturday, Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, blamed Israel for a blast that killed six group members in the central Gaza Strip.

Israel has denied any involvement in the explosion.

Tension has been high across Gaza border amid Palestinian rallies demanding their return to their homes in historical Palestine from which they were driven out in 1948 to make way for the new state of Israel.

The rallies will culminate on May 15, which will mark the 70th anniversary of Israel's establishment — an event Palestinians refer to as the "Nakba" or "The Catastrophe".

Since the rallies began on March 30, at least 47 Palestinian demonstrators have been killed and hundreds injured, according to health ministry figures.
