Palestinian sources reported that IAF aircrafts fired at several locations near the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Lahiya, in central Gaza Strip, and at a known tunnel area in Rafah, in the Strip's south.


In the early hours of the morning, the Palestinian also reported of a strike near the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza. A Palestinian medical source said one person was injured.


The strike followed a Friday clash between a Golani force and a terrorist who infiltrated the security fence near Kissufim.


Golani Staff-Sergeant Netanel Moshiashvili, 21, from Ashkelon, was killed in the clash.


The troops killed the terrorist, who was found in possession of an AK-47, munitions, hand grenades and explosives, which the military said were meant to stage a terror attack on one of the border-adjacent communities.


The GOC Southern Command is still investigating the incident.
