IDF Strikes Target Boat Moored in Gaza

GAZA (Reuters) -

Israeli aircraft destroyed a boat moored in Gaza city early on Wednesday morning.

The IDF said aircraft had struck military targets belonging to the Hamas terror organization’s naval force and underground terror infrastructure belonging to Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip.

The IDF said that the airstrikes were carried out in response to a security incident on Tuesday when a group of men from Gaza broke through the border fence into Israel and set fire to an army post. An Israeli tank then targeted a Hamas observation post. No casualties were reported.

Gaza residents said the vessel that was hit by missiles was set ablaze. They said it was due to sail to meet a flotilla of boats hoping to reach Gaza.
