[Monday Morning, April 21, 2014] Israeli military helicopters fired dozens of rounds of live ammunition into Palestinian agricultural lands, east of Beit Hanoun town, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

The sources added the terrified farmers fled their lands seeking shelter elsewhere, no injuries were reported; property damage was reported.

Meanwhile, Israeli sources said a number of stores were hit by Palestinian shells fired by fighters in the Gaza Strip into Sderot, in the Negev.

The army said that at least six shells were fired from Beit Hanoun, located a few kilometers away from Sderot.

Earlier on Monday, Palestinian fighters fired a shell at an Israeli military vehicle, across the border east of Deir al-Balah, in central Gaza.

On Sunday evening, Israeli military sources reported that an explosive charge detonated near an Israeli military vehicle driving across the border fence, in southern Gaza.

The sources said the explosion did not cause injuries or damage to the vehicle, and that the army initiated a search campaign in the area.

The army claimed Palestinian fighters also fired five shells into the Shear Hangev settlement bloc in the Western Negev, causing no damage or injuries.
