The Israeli army claimed to have hit two targets of the Islamist Hamas movement in the Gaza Strip early Sunday after Palestinian militants launched explosive devices at Israel.

"We struck two Hamas posts in response and explosions was heard by Israeli families who live near the Gaza border," the IDF wrote on Twitter.

The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) said the Israeli territory of Eshkol Regional Council was put on alert.

On Saturday, the so-called night confusion units, part of the Great March of Return protests that have been taking place every Friday since March 30, 2018, also carried out violent protest on the Gaza-Israel border.

The units burned tires near the border fence, separating Israel from Gaza, and used dozens of sound bombs to confuse Israeli forces and disturb nearby Israeli towns, according to Palestinian sources.

Meanwhile, Israeli sources said the units detonated more than 300 sound bombs on the border over three hours, with no injuries reported.

In a statement earlier on Saturday, the units said night activities would take place along the strip's border every day at 7.00 p.m. until dawn.

Ashraf al-Qedra, spokesman for the Gaza Health Ministry, said a Palestinian was killed and three others wounded on Saturday during clashes with Israeli soldiers in the northern part of the coastal enclave.

On March 30, Palestinians in Gaza are to commemorate the one-year of the Great March of Return, which calls for the right of Palestinian refugees and their descendants.

Since the beginning of the weekly border demonstrations last year, 261 Palestinians have been killed and 29,000 others injured, sources said.
