CBNNews.com - GAZA STRIP - In the first violations since the cease-fire went into effect on Sunday, Hamas gunmen opened fire on IDF (Israel Defense Forces) troops in two separate incidences Tuesday.
In the first incident, gunmen fired on soldiers patrolling near the security fence, south of the Kissufim crossing.
A short time later, Palestinian gunmen opened fire on IDF soldiers in central Gaza.
There were no injuries in either event.
Despite the incidents, the IDF began releasing reserve soldiers, called up two weeks ago, on Tuesday afternoon.
Regular brigades will remain in the area, ready to respond as needed.
Meanwhile, since the cease-fire went into effect, Hamas gunmen have shot and tortured dozens of Fatah-affiliated Palestinians in northern Gaza, allegedly for collaborating with Israel.
Reports coming from the Strip say Hamas gunmen executed 16 Fatah members, shot some 80 men in the legs, broke the hands of others, and put out the eyes of three prisoners.
According to eyewitnesses, Hamas operatives have taken people into custody for smiling in public.
