Three grenade-carrying infiltrators from Gaza captured in Israel

It was the first time since Hamas took over Gaza in 2007 that a military exercise in Gaza was announced in advance, with warnings about live fire and the sounds of explosions, Haaretz reported.

On Friday, Palestinians in Gaza plan to start "marches of return" to the fence to protest the Israeli occupation and the 11-year blockade imposed on the Strip.

A Palestinian woman warms herself by a fire inside her house on a winter day, in the northern Gaza Strip January 31, 2018.

"We don't know who sent them and what their goal was", an Israeli army spokeswoman told AFP.

Israeli fighter jets struck targets in southern Gaza, according to army reports, following the infiltration of a group of four Gaza Palestinians into Israel Saturday night.

Palestinian security sources said there had been no casualties.

Membership in organizations such as these would provide the Palestinians with new opportunities to challenge Israel's legitimacy and besmirch the Jewish state on global stages.

Brigadier General Ronen Menlis from the IDF spokesperson's Unit said: "No barrage of missiles was sacked at Israel from Gaza".

The machinery was damaged but did not catch fire, and the attackers fled back into Gaza, she said.

"Hamas must understand such conduct will only make its situation worse".

A day later gunfire from Gaza set off Israel's Iron Dome air defence system and in response an army tank fired at a Hamas position.

The Iron Dome is created to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and artillery shells fired from distances of 4km to 70km.

Last month there was a surge in cross-border violence, seen as among the most serious since Israel and Hamas fought a war in 2014 - their third since 2008.
