MK Haim Yellin, a former head of the Eshkol Regional Council and member of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said that "the question of how the terrorists managed to penetrate 12 miles into Israel from the Gaza Strip should be immediately checked by all the elements in the defense establishment".

Notably, the military drills come only days before a planned Friday rally during which Gazan demonstrators plan to converge en masse on the strip's roughly 45-kilometer-long eastern border with Israel.

Tuesday's rally, organized by Gaza's Religious Affairs Ministry and the Association of Palestinian Scholars, an NGO, was meant to drum up support for Friday's mass demonstration during which Gazans plan to converge on the Gaza-Israel border.

"We don't know who sent them and what their goal was", an Israeli army spokeswoman told AFP. They tried to set fire to engineering vehicles and returned to the Gaza Strip unharmed.

Gazans are calling for mass marches toward a border fence that seals off the coastal territory from Israel.

Commenting on Tuesday's incident, MK Haim Yellin (Yesh Atid) said that the incident was "a serious breach of security".

In addition, the crown prince will have meetings at Google and Apple, and meet with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. President Barack Obama also angered the Saudis by negotiating a nuclear agreement with their regional rival, Iran.

"Hamas must understand such conduct will only make its situation worse".

Israeli ground forces also killed two Palestinian teenagers in cross-border fire.

Israel fired Iron Dome missiles after mistakenly thinking militants had launched rockets in the Gaza Strip.

Yesterday night, Israel's Iron Dome missile defence system was activated and sirens sounded near the border, but it later turned out these were false alarms.

An Israeli tank has fired on 2 Hamas positions in Gaza after bullets were fired from the positions.
