Israel Defense Forces troops thwarted a terrorist attack late Sunday night, after identifying a Palestinian attempting to throw a Molotov cocktail at the Rachel’s Tomb compound, igniting another series of clashes at the Gaza border between the IDF and Hamas.

IDF tanks also attacked Hamas observation posts in Gaza, in response to massive rock-throwing and an additional dispatch of incendiary balloons flown into Israel, Channel 12 reported.

The IDF struck several Hamas targets in Gaza early Sunday morning after shrapnel from the downing of a rocket fired from Gaza hit a house in the southern Israeli city of Sderot, according to the military. A 58-year-old Israeli man was lightly wounded in the incident, according to first responders.
