No casualties have yet been reported in the Saturday attack.

However, the farm was destroyed and several of its animals were killed, the Palestinian WAFA news agency reported.

Meanwhile, a 28-year-old Palestinian man lost his life earlier on Saturday after he was hit in the face with a tear gas canister fired by an Israeli soldier.

Also on Saturday, a 12-year-old Palestinian boy died of injuries he sustained in an Israeli airstrike on the Gaza strip on Thursday.

Tel Aviv justifies its attacks on the Gaza Strip by saying they are measures taken in response to rockets fired into the occupied territories from the Gaza Strip.
