Israeli army jeep hit by bullets near Gaza

(JTA) — An Israeli army vehicle was hit by a volley of bullets near the Gaza Strip as Palestinians staged riots near the fence separating Gaza from Israel.

Army Radio reported that the incident on Friday, in which no one was hurt, was the first such attack since Israel’s assault on Hamas targets in Gaza as part of Operation Defensive Shield last year. 

On Tuesday, a rocket launched from Gaza landed near Ashkelon. Rioting also occurred on Friday in a number of places in the West Bank and in Jerusalem.
