On Tuesday evening, the Israeli army fired missiles into an area close to the perimeter fence, east of Beit Hanoun, in the northeastern part of the Gaza Strip, causing five injuries.

Medical sources said five Palestinians were rushed to Beit Hanoun Hospital in northern Gaza, suffering shrapnel wounds from Israeli missiles.

The army also fired several shells into two sites, believed to be run by armed resistance groups, east of Gaza City and east of Khan Younis in southern Gaza.

Israeli sources said three Israelis were injured by homemade shells allegedly fired from the Gaza Strip and claimed that Palestinian factions in Gaza fired 22 shells.

They added that the shells were fired after the army “fired missiles in retaliation for shells reportedly fired earlier from Gaza.”

The latest developments came in the aftermath of the death of political prisoner Khader Adnan, who died in an Israeli prison after 87 days of hunger strike, protecting his Administrative Detention without charges.

Egyptian-Mediated Ceasefire Agreement Reached

A ceasefire agreement was reached through Egyptian medication between Palestinian factions and leadership in Gaza and Israeli officials.

Media sources said the ceasefire agreement went into effect at four at dawn Wednesday after certain ‘understandings’ were reached through Egyptian mediators.

Sources in Egypt said the agreement is conditional on Israel’s cessation of firing missiles and shells into Gaza, and in return, Palestinian resistance factions will abide by the deal.

However, there have been no statements regarding the details of this agreement or whether Israel will ease restrictions and its siege on the coastal region and effectively remains as an agreement to prevent further escalation of a full-blown offensive.

The agreement came hours after Israel bombarded many parts of the Gaza Strip in retaliation to what it called “the firing of shells from the coastal enclave into nearby Israeli areas.”

The Islamic Jihad in Gaza said it fired many shells into Israeli areas to retaliate to the death of Khader Adnan, 45, a political figure of the group, who died in an Israeli prison after 86 days of hunger strike.

Late Tuesday, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that Israeli missiles and shells have injured six Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
