The Israeli military launched artillery strikes on seven Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday evening after an IDF officer was moderately wounded when a group of troops patrolling the border came under sniper fire.

At least three Hamas members were killed in the Israeli strikes.

Wednesday’s events followed an outburst of violence last Friday that was set off by the killing of an IDF soldier on the border by a Palestinian sniper.

In response to that attack, the IDF struck dozens of Hamas targets in Gaza. Four terrorists died on the strikes. A ceasefire was announced early Saturday morning.
