The Israeli military struck a position belonging to the Palestinian Resistance group, Hamas in Gaza on Friday evening, resulting in the injury of at least one Palestinian. 

In a statement, the Israeli military claimed that the attack was a response to the throwing of hand grenades and the detonation of an explosive device at the fence separating besieged Gaza from Israel.

Gaza has been under a hermetic Israeli siege since 2007, and thousands of Palestinains died as a result of several major Israeli wars since then. 

On Wednesday, five Palestinians were killed and over 25 wounded when an explosive device was detonated near the Gaza-Israel fence. 

Several Palestinians were also injured by Israeli fire earlier that day, and others, including a medic and a journalist, were shot by Israeli forces during the evacuation of the wounded.
