Israel launched an air strike on the Palestinian Gaza Strip on Tuesday, the first such attack since an eight-day war in November, Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls the territory, and Israel’s military said.
“Occupation planes bombarded an open area in northern Gaza, there were no wounded,” a statement from the Hamas interior ministry said. An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed there had been a strike in Gaza, but gave no further details.
Israel and Hamas agreed to an Egyptian-mediated truce in November after eight days of fighting in which 170 Palestinians and six Israelis were killed.
