Egyptian troops open fire on Hamas positions in Gaza

(Cairo) After a bomb exploded inside a military vehicle on the Egypt/Gaza border, Egyptian troops opened up on Hamas military terrorist positions inside Gaza.

The Ministry of Interior of the Hamas-run government denounced the attack which a spokesman described as "firing directly and deliberately at two Palestinian military posts on the southern Gaza Strip borders."

Meanwhile, the head of Hamas terrorist arm Abu Ubayda al-Jarrah denied the reports. He explained that Egyptian troops accidentally opened fire "near our forces" but said it was part of ongoing military operations in Rafah, and not specifically targeting Gaza.
