The sources said that all wounded Palestinians suffered mild-to-moderate injuries, and are gradually recovering.

Israeli sources said that several shells were fired, after midnight, from the Gaza Strip towards Asqalan (Ashkelon).

Israeli Ynetnews has reported that several shells were fired from Gaza overnight, and that that Iron Dome interception system managed to intercept and destroy five shells, while a sixth shell landed and detonated in an open area.

The Israeli army also claimed it bombarded a workshop used by Palestinian fighters to manufacture shells, in addition to bombarding what was referred as a “launching pad” used for firing shells into adjacent Israeli areas.
