An explosive device was activated near an IDF jeep moving along the security fence in northern Gaza. No injuries or damage were reported.


Fatah's military wing, the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, and the Popular Resistance Brigades, which are also affiliated with the Fatah, claimed responsibility for the attack.


Meanwhile, a Qassam rocket fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip fell in an open field near the Nativ Haasara southern community on Wednesday morning.


No one was injured and no damage was caused. The IDF retaliated, firing artillery rounds at launch pads in the northern Gaza Strip.


The community’s residents woke up to a loud boom around 7 am when the rocket exploded near green houses.


“We heard an explosion, we entered the shelters and I asked myself whether I should send the kids to school or stay home with them,” a worried mother said.


Nativ Haasara and south Ashkelon have been regular targets of Qassam rockets over the last three weeks.


Stabbing attack


On Tuesday, a 25-year-old man sustained serious wounds and a 17-year-old girl was lightly injured in a stabbing attack at the Gush Etzion junction.


The man was stabbed in the stomach and was taken to hospital for treatment. His condition improved at the hospital and doctors later characterized his wounds as moderate.


The terrorist, a 28-year-old Hebron resident, managed to stab the two victims before being shot by soldiers at the scene. Immediately after the attack, police, army, and rescue forces were dispatched to the area.


The assailant, who sustained serious wounds after soldiers fired at him and was taken to a hospital in Israel, arrived at the hitch-hiking post at the junction around 6 p.m. and proceeded to stab the victims.
