Local media said that an Israeli reconnaissance plane fired a rocket on a group of Palestinians gathering near a position of Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas movement, in Ashkelon. The IDF said it launched the strike in response to fire coming from the Gaza Strip. "No injuries to IDF troops were reported", the statement posted to Twitter added.

The incident took place amid Egyptian efforts to broker a cease-fire between Israel and the Palestinian militant group, which controls the coastal strip.

A video released by the Israeli military shows two men in a watchtower, said to be in northern Gaza, and puffs of smoke as one appears to open fire.

Israel says Hamas, which rules Gaza, is using the protests as cover to carry out cross-border attacks.

At least 158 Palestinians have been killed in four months of weekly border protests and one Israeli soldier was shot dead by a Gaza sniper.

According to Israel's Channel Two, following the incident, Hamas issued a statement saying, "There will be dire consequences, the occupation should not sleep quietly - the resistance can not allow the occupation to attack our positions without paying a price". By the end of July, over 155 Palestinians had died by Israeli fire and thousands were injured, according to the Palestinian health ministry in Gaza.
