Gunfire from the Gaza Strip earlier today hit a locksmith’s workshop in the southern town of Netiv Ha’asara, the military says.

Nobody was hurt in the incident.

Last month a similar incident occurred, apparently as Hamas security forces clashed with Palestinians close to the northern Gaza border.

It is not immediately clear if the shot today was errant fire or intentional.
