A Humvee armored vehicle of the Israel military was attacked in the morning of September 7 by an armed drone, which took off from the Gaza Strip.
“A terror squad in Gaza launched a drone into Israel that dropped what appears to be an explosive device; an IDF [Israeli Defense Forces] vehicle was lightly damaged,” the Israeli military wrote on Twitter.
Israeli sources released a video showing the targeted Humvee, which sustained very minimum damage.
The Israeli military said that its units targeted the squad that launched the armed drone. However, Palestinian sources have not reported any Israeli strike on Gaza, so far.
A day earlier, five rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip at nearby Israeli settlements. The attack provoked a series of Israeli strikes on military positions in the northern and eastern parts of the Palestinian region.
These recent attacks were apparently a response to the killing of Ali al-Ashqar and Khaled al-Rubai, 17 and 14-year old boys. Both teenagers were shot and killed by the Israeli military while they were participating in protests near the separation line around Gaza.
