Just weeks after an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire ended 50 days of hostilities between Israel and Hamas, along with other terrorist groups in Gaza, a mortar was reportedly fired into Israel from Gaza on Tuesday.

According to the Times of Israel, no injuries or damage have been reported. Haaretz added:

Hamas said it had no knowledge of any mortar attack on Israel and that the Palestinians factions remained committed to the truce.

The shell exploded in an open area near the Gaza border, opposite a town in the Eshkol Regional Council, Channel 2 reported.

Just last week, Hamas admitted that it fired rockets from civilian areas in Gaza during its conflict with Israel.
