Israel’s Air Force went in action over Gaza Wednesday night after Palestinian gunmen opened fire on Israeli forces Wednesday night while attempting to cross the border from southern Gaza into the Kissufim area. A fierce firefight ensued and an Israeli officer was injured by a Palestinian sniper. The IDF retaliated with heavy tank and artillery fire against Hamas positions in central Gaza. When the shooting persisted, Israel deployed its air force. The Palestinians report one dead, 10 injured.
