Israeli Military: Mortar Fire From Gaza Strikes Israel for First Time Since End of War

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says a mortar round fired from Gaza hit southern Israel for the first time since the end of the Gaza war last month.

The military says the explosion did not wound anyone or cause any damage.

Israel and Hamas agreed to a cease-fire in August that brought an end to the 50-day war.
