(JTA) — Following the targeting of Israeli soldiers by Palestinian snipers, an Israeli aircraft and a tank fired at Hamas positions along the border with Gaza.

The incident on April 19, in which no one was injured on either side of the border, was the first disturbance of its kind in weeks since the coming into effect of an unofficial truce between Hamas and Israel, Kan, the Israel Broadcasting Corop, reported. Last month, several rockets were launched into Israel, drawing retaliatory strikes.

As a result, the number of terrorist incidents recorded in March by the Israel Security Agency soared to 308 attacks – a 90-percent increase over the February tally.
