Palestinian snipers opened fire from Gaza toward an Israeli farmer next to Kibbutz Nir Oz in southern Israel on Thursday. The IDF responded with fire at unpopulated areas.

The man wasn’t injured, taking cover behind a tractor until IDF troops arrived and removed him from the area. The tractor was damaged in the incident.

On Wednesday, shots were fired towards an armored military jeep near the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
