7 Palestinians wounded by Israeli artillery shelling in southern Gaza: medics

At least seven Palestinians were injured on Thursday night by Israeli artillery shelling on Rafah town in southern Gaza Strip, medics said.

Ashraf al-Qedra, spokesman of the Health Ministry in Gaza, told reporters that seven Palestinians were moderately injured by the shrapnel of the shells fired by Israeli troops stationed on the border between eastern Gaza Strip and Israel.

Palestinian security officials also said that the Israeli artillery shelling targeted a military lookout post east of the town, destroying the post and wounding seven Palestinians.

An Israeli army spokesman said in a press statement that the artillery shelling was a response to the releasing of arson balloons carrying explosives that exploded in southern Israel. No injuries were reported.
