    TEL AVIV (Sputnik) - The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed that their fighter jets carried out strikes in the northern Gaza Strip targeting a Hamas camp in response to "terrorist" fire on the Israel-Gaza border.

    Local media reported late on Tuesday that the Israeli Air Force stroke targets in the Northern Gaza Strip following Tuesday's escalation along the border.

    "Terrorists shot at our troops stationed along Israel’s border fence with Gaza several times throughout the day. In response, IDF fighter jets struck several terror sites in a Hamas military camp in the northern Gaza Strip," the IDF said on Twitter.

    The Gaza Health Ministry said a Palestinian was killed and two others were injured as a result of the Israeli attack.
