The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported that the soldiers fired at least two missiles into farmlands, west of Khan Younis city, burning trees and causing damage to nearby Palestinian homes and property.

The air force also fired several missiles into an area north of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region, causing damage in several homes, while several Palestinians suffered anxiety attacks.

In addition, an Israeli Apache helicopter fired two missiles into a blacksmith workshop in Jaffa Street, in the at-Tuffah neighborhood of Gaza city, destroying the workshop, and causing damage in a number of nearby homes.

In related news, Israeli navy boats opened fire at a number of fishing boats in Palestinian waters in Khan Younis and Rafah, causing damage, and forcing the fishers to head back to the shore fearing additional escalation.
