The Israeli army on Wednesday targeted two locations of the Palestinian Hamas group in the northern Gaza Strip. 

"A tank shelled two military positions belonging to Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip," said Israeli army spokesman Avichay Adraee.

He added that the shelling came in response to alleged rocket fire from the Gaza Strip towards Israel.

In an earlier statement, the Israeli army said it had observed the firing of three shells from the Gaza Strip towards Israel.

Hamas has yet to comment on the development and the Palestinian Health Ministry has reported no casualties as a result of the shelling.
